All that WAS ONCE right about playoffs in professional sports (and, remember, I'm a Reds fan!)

"Then came 1974 and the worst season of all [for Sparky Anderson's Big Red Machine]. The Reds won 98 games, more than every team but one. But that one team was the Los Angeles Dodgers, and they won 102 games and went to the playoffs instead" (Posnanski 16).

Posnanski, Joe. The Machine: The Story of the 1975 Cincinnati Reds. New York: William Morrow Books, 2009.

More fascinating details to come from this highly entertaining book!
