Watch the runner, not the baton? Really?

From the Scrum Guide:

During the meeting, the Development Team members explain:
- What did I do yesterday that helped the Development Team meet the Sprint Goal?
- What will I do today to help the Development Team meet the Sprint Goal?
- Do I see any impediment that prevents me or the Development Team from meeting the Sprint Goal?

Why focus on the workers?

Shouldn’t we focus on the work instead?
