What a horrible series. This team cannot handle the spotlight. Haven't played well in big games all year. Thank God this series is over. I think we would have lost 25 out of 25 games to these guys. I sure don't want to see anymore of this.
I'll say it because no one else will, but the Phillies are so good, that no one was going to beat them. They come in with those 3 hammers and you just don't have a chance. It was a magical season, but we faced a team with hammers. Our pitching was suburb but there was simply overpowering. They didn't hit us much and if not for a ball in the lights and a phantom HBP, we'd be playing tomorrow. But we're not. This is a good team and I cry because it's over but can't wait for Spring Training.

Also want to thank you guys. I've had a lot of fun in the Game Threads this year.
Heather, durl, Chip, Charles, Reds Fanatic, reds44, Redsman3203, Homer Bailey, kbrake, and so many countless others- THANK YOU, it's been fun.
I'd rather listen to Kelch read the phone book than suffer through Thom Brennaman's attempt to make every instance on the field the most important event since the discovery of manned space flight. -westofyou
Game 2 was the backbreaker.
It was a fun year though. October was interesting for the first time in a long time for me.
