Re: Is it OK to call it a choke and still be proud of them?
I love this team. There will be better days. But they choked. Yes, there was some bad luck. But that's just an excuse. Last year, the Cards had bad luck. And overcame it. The Giants had bad luck. They overcame it. The Reds had every opportunity to takes both games 3 and 4, and couldn't get it done. Couldn't make pitches when they needed to, couldn't field the ball cleanly, and couldn't hit with runners on. I don't know what IS a choke job if this isn't.
It's baseball. It happens. But it's going to be a rough winter.
