They didn't hit us much and if not for a ball in the lights and a phantom HBP, we'd be playing tomorrow. But we're not. This is a good team and I cry because it's over but can't wait for Spring Training.
Roy Oswalt wasn't exactly a hammer. I like the way the Reds hit against him this year. It was that other boneheaded stuff that killed us in the game that he pitched.
It's hard to not have a great respect and appreciation for Roy Halladay, ditto for Cole Hammels.
