This... I was telling my co-workers this morning that as much as I would love to see them win today, if they did, I would feel very uncomfortable about the team advancing. IF they would have won the 3rd game instead of losing the way they did - wouldn't have those feelings at all (well some). These last three games seemed to exposed some of the Reds flaws - that over a long season sort of even out or get "pushed under the rug". A short 5 games series is such a gamble anyway. IMHO the biggest flaw was RISP (regardless of outs). You know its bad when someone points that out who has a very passing interest in the game... namely my Mom.
