Which does not make them "the better team." Means they won 4 out of 7 games.

And who is not giving them credit? I've been telling the cocky folks in these threads talking about how we were going to cut through 'em like butter that it was idiotic to think that way. The Giants have a very good team -- any team with that level of pitching is a very good team -- but they're not better than the Phils, and if you ran out and played that series 10x the Phils would win more series than they'd lose.
