Re: The Cincinnati Mentality and the Reds
It takes the right blend of talent and hustle to win. You definitely need the talented and gifted players, but you also need to surround them with a little bit of grit and desire. The two, when played off of in the right mix, are usually a recipe for winning. It takes some vision and luck to put the two together.
Personally, I think this team is, basically, poorly constructed. It's way past time to make some changes cause the current model is never going to get anything done.
Talent is God Given: be humble.
Fame is man given: be thankful.
Conceit is self given: be careful.
