We already got bad before we got good - just don't know if this team is actually good yet.

I always want to win, but I have seen this team mortgage the future for a chance at a postseason in the past, and it's been a bad idea.

The White Flag Trade was so scrutinized, but it was a realistic, future-minded move at a time when many didn't appreciate those kinds of moves.
