Is Girardi a leader?
He seems to say the right things and I believe he loves being a Yankee. And I think the players like him and respect him but something seems to be missing with him.
Maybe it's just not his nature but he lacks enthusiasm. He just seems dull. Too stoic maybe.
I just don't think he inspires people.
Maybe it is time for a change. Nice guy? Yes. Team leader? Not so sure.
'Real' Yankee fans tell the truth about the team whether it is nice or not.
"Well, that kind of puts a damper on even a Yankee win."
