Another World Series Challenge?

So, who's the best team to miss out on a World Series appearance?  It could be the same question as which are the biggest postseason upsets, but we're going to look at it from this perspective.  Which are the best teams, historically, to not make the postseason?  A brilliant reader in the comment section of JoePo's Weakest World Series Winners post brought it up and suggested the 2001 Mariners and 1993 Giants should be on the list.  Who else is worth mentioning?  I think the 1969 Cubs should be considered.  We're going to look into it this week and hope to have a post done by Friday.  We'll probably use real Win/Loss figures, as well as team's Pythagorian Win-Loss.  Please include suggestions in the comments section below.  Thanks!
