And maybe you are correct. I don't know, but when you throw like Halladay and Hamels, what in the world can you do. Errors didn't hurt in games one and three. Game two was a mess, with a ball missed in the lights (human error) and other such stuff. Just didn't happen except for our manager putting a rookie on the mound (two rookies to be exact) instead of...well, that's over.
Truth is and always will be that they were better than us in the pitching department. They shut us down in two games. Yes, the series might have gone to game 4, but then back comes Doc. And then what do you do? Cross your fingers and hope for the best?
