I'm ok with them not losing 100, even if it means losing just 99.

And when they finally won the World Series, they celebrated without annoying every other fan in the country." Jim Caple, ESPN (January 12, 2011)

You win 60, you lose 60, and you lose almost all the rest if you want a good draft position.

Now, I get you're talking about the macro level but even a .500 team can say realistically they're only a couple of moves from contending for a second-wild card and anything can happen in the playoffs.
Free agents know which teams are going to be competitive. Extra wins in September junk time wonít move the needle for them. I would say the same goes for the fans who actually are paying attention.
