How can you not love this year? A Red who could be the MVP in Votto, beating the Cards for the division title....really cool.
The Phiilies are the best team in baseball over a short series, no question.
But they do have to play the games and win them, and if baseball teaches us nothing else, it's that anything can happen in a small sample size.
This isnt about who is the best team, it's about who is best on the scheduled game days.
The Reds were not better than the A's in 1990, but they were during a 4 game stretch.
I don't think anyone here would pick them to win it all, but they still play the games, you know?
