    That's said with hindsight though. The playoffs tell just as much of a story as the regular season does and it was my opinion that from the start of game 1 to the 10th inning in game 3 the Reds were the best team out of all others in the playoffs. Things can change slowly or quickly, just how the outcome of a series can be told through one play or through 7 games. For example, the Rangers had the best offense in baseball but after one game it didn't matter. The Braves had a much better team top to bottom than the Cardinals but essentially one (among a few) play(s) sent them home. The Giants were an inferior team to the Reds and Cardinals but 6 elimination games later they're WS Champs.
    There are only two seasons - Winter and Baseball.

    They were the only team to win 11 games so they were the best in the playoffs, they lost the first 2 games then went 11-3 the rest of the way and finished with a .687 W% overall.

    Lol

    Dusty Baker after being up by 2 games in a postseason series is 1-7

    This doesn't include being up 3-2 in the 2002 WS.
