I would be far more pissed if I didn't already know what was going to happen two months ago when I said if they won the 2nd WC they would likely go to the WS again since that's how they win when they have mediocre squads.
It's not soccer, every North American sport has some type of tournament. Whats the point of playoffs if you don't let the team who wins advance? I think you should take up European soccer if you want two teams competing past the regular season every year (which wouldnt have been the Reds this year). Had the Reds faced major injuries this year (Cueto, Votto, Phillips) and made the second spot I'm sure you wouldn't be so hamstrung over it.
You have remarkable knowledge of the game, you can twist any stat for your arguments to get yourself all tied up, but for what? If you knew what was going to happen why are you still watching? Just turn it off unless you're one of those people that likes pain/being upset.
