Exactly. It's absurd to accuse the Reds of not being emotionally involved in a deciding playoff game, one in which they were constantly one swing away from winning it. This club has been fighting adversity from game one and has overcome more the its share, mostly because of it's never say die, winning attitude.
To argue that the Cards are more "winners" than any other team is insulting, absurd and just plain ignorant. If they were such "winners" then why did they lose their division by 9 games? They sneak into the playoffs only because of a last minute rule change, get past the wild card game only because of the worst ump call in the history of MLB playoffs, and snuck past the Nat's only because the Nat's shut down their #1 starter.
The only difference between the Cards dugout and the Reds dugout in their respective game fives, is that the Reds dugout has less syringes, and less sandpaper/pinetar.
I am much prouder to be a Reds fan than a Cardinal fan, because while we might have lost our series, the Reds aren't constantly accused of cheating.
