that's silly.  They've added what, $600m in value to the club since they bought it and have turned it into a perennial NL contender and a place where top players want to play?  Because they extended Strasburg?  So they get mocked for bad managerial decisions?

They can put all the negative publicity to rest if they extend Harper this off-season.

The stadium plus the across the board appreciation in sports franchises did most of that value increase for them.  The spending philosophy has been odd: go for broke on big-ticket items and then cheap out on the marginal things that often end up making the difference.
