Because there's a great deal of merit in looking ahead to next season and beyond.

I get why people disagree on this. I don't get the implication of moral superiority that seems to come with it. :laugh":

EDIT: The goal is to win a championship. I don't think it is a stretch to suggest that a late-season run (combined with some futures-for-fixes moves) does less to help the team achieve that goal than standing pat or trading off.

No one is calling for them to throw games. They'd simply prefer the team perform in a way that accurately demonstrates its strengths and its weaknesses, so that the latter can be addressed and the team improved for next season.
