Rangers @ Yankees: Today’s Lineup

As per Pete Abraham, the Yankees’ lineup:

Gardner LF
Jeter SS
Abreu RF
Rodriguez 3B
Giambi 1B
Posada DH
Cano 2B
Cabrera CF
Molina C

Mussina (10-5, 3.93 ERA) gets Scott Feldman (1-3, 4.60 ERA) tonight at 7:05 ET. Though I’m posting late in the day, the Yankees called up Brett Gardner from SWB and inserted him right away in the lead-off spot. I like the move quite a bit. Gardner is very fast, has 11 doubles, 10 triples, 3 homers, and 29 RBIs with a .287 average in SWB. He also led the team with 59 runs, 68 walks, and 34 stolen bases (out of 42). He shouldn’t be allowed to rust on the bench, but should play in multiple situations (starting, pinch-running, spelling others) and should play especially if and when he contributes. I also like that he starts, and has a chance to show what he can do on base, against a righty. I’ll be in and out during the game. Enjoy.
