    Phillips and Votto saw 3 pitches and swung at all 3.

    I don't care about pitch counts. It's the playoffs, the pitch counts won't amount to much as much as actual results. If the Reds score 5 runs on 80 pitches against Halladay, it's a success.

    Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Halladay throws something absurd like 91% of his pitches for 1st pitch strikes. The scouting report reads "go up there ready to hack"

    Exactly.

    The pitch count age has conditioned people to get too carried away over swinging at the first pitch. For some guys, the first pitch is the best one you'll see.
