"It’s at-bats like that why I reject all the woo we attach to the postseason. The Phillies didn’t go 7-1 to start October because of vibes and chemistry and they didn’t lose because they’re chokers. They won because the millimeters, the tenths of a second that separate F8 and HR went their way for two weeks, and then they lost when they didn’t for a week. That’s not character, and it’s barely skill. It’s just baseball."
