Nicely put Marty!!!
I've content the attitude is part of the environment. If we are taught to win in the minors the mood should flow up the line. It also would help in keeping buts in the stands and keeping our minor league teams in good locations, instead of being kicked to Las Vegas. Winning breathes a can't lose metality which might extend past the All-Star break or 7th inning for a club like the Mets. My example would be the Mets in 2nd half of the season or Marlins 2nd half crappy attitude on last year.
