A 5 game sample isn't enough to determine who had the best pitching. Over the course of 162 games, the Cincinnati Reds had far and away the best pitching in baseball. Their ERA+ of 127 was the best that any team in baseball had produced since the 2002 baseball season. The best in a full decade. And they lost. Would it be great if they were able to improve upon that? Absolutely. But to say that they didn't have the best pitching is crazy. They did. It wasn't close.
