The Reds got steamrolled by a better team. The Reds are good and the Phils are really good. The sun came up this morning and life goes on.
You are right. It wasn't so much bad effort because they did try too hard. But it was a choke job. They played nothing like they did enroute to over 90 wins. It was not a good team losing to a better team. The Reds were not even a "good" team for this series
