I caught this quote today on the Mets.com mailbag:
"Managers are in place to manage, not motivate." – Marty Noble, reporter, MLB.com
Managers are there to manage, not motivate? In the corporate world, if a manager only managed without motivating, the company’s performance would suffer and the manager wouldn’t last. What’s true for corporate teams is true for baseball teams.
You can find a lot of great advice in sports coverage. Just not in this one.
