I think you are completely misunderstanding the nature of development. Some players are able to adjust and grow and others are not, more often than not this has more to do with the player than the system. IMO you are placing way too much emphasis on the teams role in this while making what I believe to be a false assumption that when a players succeeds the Reds did something right and when they don't the Reds did something wrong. Things just aren't that simple.
