    Reds Leaders?

    I am way down here in Texas and so I have limited access to Reds' information. I am wondering, however, who provides the leadership on the club? Barry Larkin struck me as a real leader. I read that Greg Vaughn was a leader in the clubhouse. Perhaps Sean Casey filled that role for a couple of years. Leadership, playing the game the right way, professionalism and scrap-ocity are not as important as talent IMO. But I do think these qualities are of some importance. In 2007 who is it that will provide the leadership?

    A lot of the guys talk about watching how Griffey goes about his business and emulating him.

    As a somewhat more vocal member of the Griffey clique (and a clubhouse cutup), Dunn probably attracts a certain number of followers.

    The pitchers talk a lot about David Weathers and his influence.
    Makes all the routine posts.

    Re: Reds Leaders?

    How about this Red Leader?

    Species:
    Human

    Gender:
    Male

    Weapon:
    Blaster pistol

    Vehicle:
    X-wing starfighter

    Affiliation:
    Rebel Alliance





    A capable and well-respected pilot, Red Leader referred to the squadron under his command as "Red Boys," showing an almost fatherly role of command. Red Leader, who was known to some as Dave, had a chance at destroying the Death Star during the Battle of Yavin. His shots, unfortunately, missed the critical thermal exhaust port, just impacting on the surface. He was killed shortly thereafter when his fighter was destroyed by Darth Vader.

    Scott Hatteberg and Adam Dunn are very good leaders in the clubhouse.

    Theres a difference between charisma and leadership.

    Griffey is the closest thing to a leader this Reds team has at the moment. Hopefully someone will step up this year and take charge.

    I have also wondered about this team's leadership. Griffey, as mentioned above, is more of a lead-by-example guy. Other guys such as Adam Dunn, Scott Hatteberg, David Ross, and Weathers seem like adequate candidates.

    Paul Wilson, if he makes the team, looks like he could fit the bill of a Pete Harnisch type role. Old, battle-hardened, tough.

    I think this a big question mark on this club...Junior would be your ideal candidate because of his personal accomplishments and struggles.

    I'd say Conine has to be considered a leader...Weathers...Beyond that I think it is open for whoever takes it.

    I don't buy that Dunn is a leader on the team. One of the reasons they traded Kearns away was because of his influence on Dunn...only this season has Dunn shown up to camp in shape and with an idea that he needs to prove something...perhaps that is the tide turning for him to develop into the player he needs to be.
