Game 97: New Lineup?

It’s ridiculous that Brett Gardner was not in the lea off spot up until this point.  He has had a batting average over .300 for every month except for April.  With A-Rod not hurt, it has given Joe Girardi a little bit of flexibility with what he can do with the lineup and I like what he has come up with, for the most part.  I still think Derek Jeter should be in the bottom three of the order, but at least Gardy is leading off.  Whether this stays the case for Sunday when the Bombers take on south paw Gio Gonzalez is a different story though. Here’s the lineup:

  1. Brett Gardner, LF
  2. Derek Jeter, SS
  3. Curtis Granderson, CF
  4. Mark Teixeira, DH
  5. Robinson Cano, 2B
  6. Nick Swisher, RF
  7. Jorge Posada, 1B
  8. Eduardo Nunez, 3B
  9. Francisco Cervelli, C

And it will be Phil Hughes on the bump.  This one will start a little after 7 pm and can be seen on MY 9.  Let’s Go Yanks!!
