Look at it this way.
If we win the World Series this year, the pressure of not having won a World Series since 84 will be off of the team. You don't keep making moves to "win now" once you've already won.
It isn't that we're advocating it or anything, or that we even expect it to happen, but it isn't outrageous to think that winning a World Series wouldn't significantly impact what the front office(and Mr. I) do the next couple of years.
