I know if I was a player, especially a young player and I've been playing for a manager who hasn't won a WS, then I get a new manager who has, it's going to get my attention and help me believe. I think it would inspire me that "hey this guys been there with one of the big teams and has won it all. Our chances just got better... let's do this."
Maybe that's just me.
