My friend, the Phillies were winning this series whether we came to play or not. They're THAT good.
Only one game did I think the Reds were unprepared, and that was Game 2. I don't even know that "unprepared" is the right word. I don't think they made the mistakes because of a lack of preparation.
The series sucked, there's no way around that. But the Phillies are an absolute juggernaut. They have Jayson Werth hitting in the 5-hole, we have Jonny Gomes. I dreamt of a magical upset and a ride to the World Series, but I knew the odds were long.
The better team won this series, and they wond it quite handily.
