Go out and win one for the paycheck!

So apparently Derek Jeter is calling upon his teammates to win the World Series for Mr. Steinbrenner.

Is there any chance this works outside of movies? Like, even a little? Does “go out and win one for our owner” motivate Mark Teixeira any more than “go out and win one for the sizy bonus check we’ll all get”?

Maybe Jeter really expects Robinson Cano to be all, “oh, well now that you put it that way, I will try to win the World Series,” but I have a feeling baseball players can self-motivate around October.
