A team without leadership is going to go nowhere.
You know, you can still have a team of great hitters, fielders and pitchers and STILL NOT WIN IT ALL.
HMM. NYY come to mind. Heck, they haven't won a world series in Years. And everyone said, just get A-Rod, and we're series bound!
2004 REDSOX - Weren't supposed to beat the All mighty Yanks with their curses and such.
Hmm 95 - Pirates and Braves. Hmm I vaguely remember how the Pirates was supposed to win that one.
Lets go even FURTHER BACK - 1924 - Giants vs Senators. We weren't supposed to win that one either.
Seems to me your theory of only having good high priced players on a team doesn't necessarily = WINNING which is SOOOOOO important to you.
I vaguely remember a ragtag group of ameture hockey players in 1980 that played a PROFESSIONAL Russian Hockey Team. NO WAY were they supposed to win. They did! Why because of teamwork and a coach which led them to believe in themselves.
I think you're :stupid:
