Really? Nah, I don't buy that. I'm disappointed about this week, but VERY happy about this year.
Heck yeah, I believe it. Good seasons don't roll around very often. You make the playoffs, you *have* to have your eye on winning the whole thing. There are veteran and talented teams you'll play. If you go into the games *hoping* things turn out well, a veteran team will do, well, what the Phils did tonight.
I have no idea what the Reds' mind set was. But you have to have a killer instinct. You played 6 months of a backbreaking 162 games to get here. And unless you have a laser focus, you can blow that season in 20 minutes.
I think being happy is just weak.
