Leadership Helping Yanks Stay Ahead

Talk all day long about the 2013 replacement players in pinstripes.  Talk about general manager Brian Cashman taking chances.  Talk about the starting pitching being good enough in spots.  Talk about whatever you'd like as the main reason for the Yankees' demise not quite happening just yet like some thought.  The real talk is the leadership and presence of Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter and Andy Pettitte.  As long as those three are in the Bronx, it starts and ends with that.

Ivan Nova Could Be Heading Down Phil Hughes Boulevard

The once promising trio of Joba Chamberlain, Ian Kennedy and Phil Hughes was supposed to be pitching greatness in pinstripes for 10 years.  Except that it never happened.  Ian Kennedy was traded to Arizona, the Yanks messed with Joba so much that he never regained his true set-up stuff and Phil Hughes became a wait-and-see ballgame that ended 100 innings ago.  But Ivan Nova was the savior.  Until he wasn't.

The Andy Pettitte Factor

It's time to start wondering just how good the Yankees will be this year based on three factors.  The lineup hitting in timely spots, health and the depth of the pitching staff.  Andy Pettitte arrives in the last two categories and could realistically be the difference in New York making the playoffs and winning the division.

Yankees’ Leadership Will Soon Be Gone

Bernie Williams and Jorge Posada, two core Yankee players from the Joe Torre era, are long gone.  Mariano Rivera, another quiet leader by example, is retiring after this season.  Andy Pettitte is near the end.  And the Yankee captain, Derek Jeter, won't be back in the lineup until who knows when and is nearing 40.  Leadership used to be a huge piece of the Yankees' winning puzzle.  That leadership is dwindling away.
