Every season, the Astros and Rangers play for this beauty of a trophy

Are these two teams really in a rivalry? For nine years now, they've played six times. They certainly are "supposed" to be rivals, at least geographically, but I have a hard time pulling up any ill will for Texas. This is coming from a guy who dislikes anything related to Dallas just on principle.

Yes, it sucked when Nolan Ryan signed with them and set all sorts of records or when he wanted to go into the Hall of Fame in a Rangers hat. But that's it. I have no real beef with the Rangers other than they kick the crap out of the Astros every year. I even have friends that root for both the Rangers and the Astros.

I'll ask again. Should this be a bigger rivalry than it is? Do you look forward to this series?
