What does a 2-0 lead in the World Series mean?

This series is over.

Matt Cain's dominant pitching performance in Game 2 for San Fran, and Cliff Lee's rare appearance as a human for the Rangers in Game 1 has given the Giants a 2-0 lead and it's hard to come back from that.

The last seven teams with a 2-0 lead in the World Series have won it, and 13 of the last 14 teams with the 2-0 lead have also won rings.

It's not like San Fran is squeaking by. Their pitching looks better, they're hitting looks better. They just look utterly dominant while the Texas Rangers haven't gotten off the bus.

Unless somebody runs out  there with a bloody with a blood sock or Dave Roberts materializes on the Rangers' roster, I'm gonna say it's over.
