Hi board! I'll be camping here for several days while my GIANTS are in the big series. Giddy up!

Anyways, I don't know much about the Rangers so maybe you all could help me... is their offense really much stronger than the Giants' offense? Looking at stats, if you factor out home ballparks by comparing road stats from the regular season, the Giants have a clear edge in power numbers. But total road runs are even. Note that the Giants out-hit the mighty Phillies last series which means that their 'O could be underrated.

So maybe the Rangers hit for average and run the bases better, but the Giants hit for power better? Even offenses on paper, but the Rangers are coming in hotter so they get the overall edge? Anyone want to make a prediction? How paranoid should this Giants fan be of the Rangers' bats?
