Ehhh, I suppose. I understand what you're saying and I really like the current team too. But the Dunn/Griffey teams petered out when it came to attendance. Winning trumps all and gets the casual fan in the ballpark. Losing is like a slow leak in a balloon.
My order of things is:
1. win with good guys
2. win with bad guys
3. lose with good guys
4. lose with bad guys
