08:38 AM ET 03.19 | Thanks in some part to the WBC, we're seeing Robinson Cano's emerging leadership qualities. [And] it is time for Cano to take over leadership duties with the Yankees, who need to be his team. Cano is the undisputed leader of the Dominican Republic squad that will face off against Puerto Rico [Tuesday] in the World Baseball Classic version of the Caribbean World Series at AT&T Park. ... Derek Jeter remains the Yankees' leader. Cano will always give The Captain ultimate respect, but there is a void that must be filled. Mariano Rivera is in his last season. Alex Rodriguez is a shell of his former self. Clearly, the time is ripe for Cano, 30, to move into a lead role with the Yankees.

I've heard rumors that he may be suspended. Regardless, without Tex, Arod and Granderson in that lineup, they'll just pitch around him.

When I left my house at 5:45, we had 9" of snow. It doesn't seem to showing any signs of slowing down.

The major highways had 3" of snow on my drive in. Can't wait to try and get home. I believe every school in the state is closed today.
