I have no problem with the Reds losing to the Giants, it was a well played series by two teams who earned the right to play in the postseason. No way I would ever think that if the Reds got in by being the second wild card team and finishing 9 games out of first.
The 2nd WC is bad with the format they have for it. It should be a best of 3 (at least). What they should do (if they're dead set on the 2 WC's) is vut the regular season to 154 games, best of 3 WC (or best of 5) and do all best of 7's for the LDS, LCS and WS.
