Young Pitching Tougher To Develop Now More Than Ever

Tim Lincecum.  Remember him?  He won two CY Young awards back-to-back in 2008 and 2009 at age 24 and 25.  Now he can barely stay in the Giants' rotation.  Phil Hughes?  Bust at age 28.  Ivan Nova won 16 games in 2011 and hasn't been heard from since.  Ricky Romero was supposed to be the ace of the Blue Jays in 2009 and beyond.  Injuries and confidence have caused him to be a below average pitcher.

Yankees Need To Get Cliff Lee

Back in 2010, the Yankees failed to get Cliff Lee because minor league infielder David Adams didn't pass a physical due to a bum ankle and so the trade never happened with Seattle and Lee went to Texas instead and helped the Rangers win the pennant.  Lee, at that time, was the surest pitcher in baseball.  He isn't that now, at the age of 34, but the Yankees should still go get him.

Eli Manning threw for 3,948 yards in 2012, down nearly 1,000 from the previous year (4,933 in 2011).  Wide receiver injuries certainly played a part.  If Manning's core wideouts are back, namely Victor Cruz, and healthy, who knows how many yards Manning can throw for this coming season
