I caught a small part of Locke's show on KJR today in the car. Sounds like after todays loss Hargrove had a 57 minute closed door meeting. I have always wandered what those meetings accomplish. I remember playing ball in high school the coach could yell scream and threaten to bench us, but these are professionals with guarenteed money. How do you inspire the team if they don't already have internal drive?
I recognize every player at the professional level must have some internal drive or they would not be at the level they are at now, but what inspires a Beltre or an Everett?
How does a manager inspire a winning attitude?
Any ideas or thoughts?
I personally don't believe they can. the best way for a manager to inspire winning is to put the best players in the best places to succeed and winning breeds winning. Not closed door meetings.
