We didn't get steamrolled like we did against the Phillies, instead it came down to the 270th out of the NLDS to decide who's going to the next round, and we almost came through.
I'm no pessimist but also don't deal in "could haves" and "almosts". I almost
broke 80 on the golf course yesterday but in reality I made double bogey on 18 and shot 81. I could have
broken 80 on several occasions this year but I didn't make the putts I needed to make.
"Do or do not. There is no try." - I heard that somewhere.
