It all depends. Some players would rather go to a losing team that gave them a greater opportunity to make the 25 man roster and revive their career.
For example, the possible opportunity to start was supposedly a selling point to Affedlt this year and why he chose the Reds.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
