It's funny how the story of the Series evolved. It started as "the Rangers aren't hitting," then we saw a backlash of "let's give the Giants some credit," then it was "the Giants are a great team...but the Rangers aren't hitting or playing good D, and Ron Washington's managing is substandard."

I'll be interested to see how it keeps evolving now that we can look at the whole thing. In any case, the Giants totally deserve the crown and it's nice to see that team back on top after such a long time. The Rangers still made history for the franchise this year, which is nice to see too.

Funny year for the pool, too, but I had fun, and I hope to see you all back here next year.

Full final standings after the jump; any errors, please let me know. I'll send money out today!
