Poll Results: Don’t Worry About The Top ThreePosted: April 18, 2011
So the results are in and according to the fans, we shouldn’t be too worried about the top three in the lineup. However, this has changed somewhat in the last week as Joe Girardi has moved Bret Gardner back into the nine spot. Derek Jeter will now lead off and Curtis Granderson will bat second against righties and Nick Swisher will against lefties. The production hasn’t been great from the top of the lineup yet, but it’s still very early. We’re still at the point in the season when a player’s batting average can jump more than ten points for a base hit. So sure it may be tough by now, but I guarantee you that as the weather gets warmer, so will the bats.
Make sure you vote on the new poll: Where should Brett Gardner hit in the lineup?
