Will the Nats, the team with the best record in MLB, be a joke if the Cards send them packing?
Every post-season you see teams, even underdogs or the unexpected, rise up and perform well. It happens.
I'm certainly not going to call my team a joke. Not when you lose your ace.
You can't overlook the fact that the Reds were in a position to sweep the series and instead got swept at home to lose the series. It's never
happened in the NLDS in history. It's not really the same.
