You can't fret about the players who put you over the top when you are sitting at the base of the mountain.
The Reds can acquire all the "winning attitudes" in the world but if you don't have the players to go along with them then the "winning attitudes" will go south quick.
But I do think having guys like Doran, Duncan, Hatcher etc..in the clubhouse will help show the younger guys what a winning attitude is all about. Thats the easy part, finding more Larkins, Dibbles, Davis and Rijo's is the hard part.
