Is it OK to root for the A's now?

Normally I detest the A's and everything they stand for, as I know many of you do as well.  I checked tonight's score and saw they were up 5-0 in the second inning.  My immediate reaction was disgust.  But then, they are playing Seattle, and if they win this game it gets us a little closer to our rightful playoff spot.  An added bonus is that a strong finish by the A's, lets say they get over .500, means that Billy Beane's draft pick will not be protected.  I'd hate to see them spend money on a decent free agent (I know, if they do it will be the first time) and still pick 12 or 13 in next year's draft.  I'd rather them be in a spot where they can't sign anybody because to do so would mean giving up their #16 or #17 pick.
