This scenario came up in another thread. Personally, I'd rather have the latter. 

 

Obviously, this would be dependent on not actually knowing the outcomes of any of these hypothetical seasons. If you were to choose via a genie in a bottle, the genie would immediately erase the memory of your choice.

Whats the point of making the postseason if you dont ever win?  It just ends with frustration and disappointment every time.  I would rather win 1 world series and 9 losing seasons in 10 years, then to make the playoffs for 10 years straight and never win.  Nobody cares about division championships or wild card berths.

No, you don't want the latter.

So basically would you rather be a Marlins fan or an A's fan. That's such a tough question. I can tell you that this board would be a much better place with the A's scenario. In the last four years before this one we had a season where we won 92 and 87 games and most on this board call them "losing seasons". Imagine this place if the team went back to early 90's Angels. It would be tough. I still think I would tolerate that for another championship. My final opinion would be based on what scenario improves our chances of keeping Trout for his entire career.

Poll results illustrate the instant gratification society we live in.

 

I took the second option.  I wouldn't want to spend the next 4 summers watching a losing team.

 

i totally disagree. instant gratification doesn't even enter the conversation. the question boils down to, do you want to be consistently good or sometimes great? most people, including myself would prefer to watch occasional greatness rather than perpetual goodness.

Let me explain. I went 12 years as a fan waiting for that AL West flag. 36 years for the World Series trophy. In between a whole lot of miserably bad years, a few playoffs and now a four year drought to get into the playoffs again. I don't want to wait 36 years between trophies, win the Damn thing now. I've been able to live with the aftermath of losing seasons, the Trophy takes the sting out of it.
