Did anyone expect a long post-season? Lets be honest here. This is a young Reds team with next-to-no playoff experience, starting a pitcher who is only three months removed from returning from TJ surgery. Also, lets not forget the Reds were not even a .500 team the final month or so of the season. And we faced arguably the game's best pitcher in Game One, pitching for the best team.
We were big underdogs coming in, and even bigger underdogs when Doc Halladay is on the hill. The true test of this Reds team will be the games Halladay doesn't
pitch. We owned Oswalt this year and I think we'll beat him again Friday night.
