What do you consider "entertainment value"?
Is it only entertainment value if you win the world serries? The NLCS? Just make the playoffs? Just be competitive and in the hunt? Or just play a baseball game and don't care about the outcome? There is a spectrum full of choices, none of which are right or wrong but it does explain a lot of the positions that are taken here at RZ.
If someone considers nothing short of the NLCS as "entertainment value" because winning is everything then it makes total sense why they would consider any move short of a big time star worthless. If someone is just happy to see a baseball game then it makes total sense why they wouldn't be indignant over every transaction and appear as applogists.
It all boils down to what you consider entertainment value. I just want to go see baseball played at the major league level, sit in nice seats and enjoy the time at the ballpark. As long as the price I pay is comissurate with the baseball being played I am happy. I certinally want the Reds to do well, but I'm not as concerned with winning and losing at the ballpark because that's not why I go. That's just me and as I said before there is no "right or wrong" in this discussion.
