IMO Youkilis should be batting 2nd, he is an obp guy and would fit pretty well in that spot.  Move Jeter down in the lineup.




You cannot be serious.




Funny everyone was saying Jeter should be moved down in the lineup 2 years ago without being questioned but coming off a serious foot injury I am being questioned as if I am crazy.


Lets see how he is in spring training.





There is no where to move him to. You cant put him at 3, 4, or 5 and Girardi doesnt have the balls to hit him lower even if he starts off hitting .125

I don't have a problem with moving Jeter to #2 and batting Ichiro 1st.  It was putting Youk, who has some power, in the 2nd spot.  I thought it was crazy for the Giants to bat Willie Mays 1st.

Putting together the lineup


Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Dec 20, 2012  



1. Ichiro Suzuki RF
2. Derek Jeter SS
3. Robinson Cano 2B
4. Mark Teixeira 1B
5. Curtis Granderson LF
6. Kevin Youkilis 3B
7. Designated hitter
8. Brett Gardner CF
9. Chris Stewart C




This lineup is ok. Really...you can interchange Ichiro and Jeter because their offensive stats are very similar. Jeter has the higher career OBP and Ichiro has the higher .BA.  What makes Ichiro more ideal as a leadoff hitter than Jeter is the fact that he strikes out a lot less.


I am not "in love" with Chris Stewart starting everyday.  The Yankee lineup has 8 fulltime veterans, IMO, i think the Yankees can afford to throw Austin Romine into the fire. All that can be asked from Romine, for now, is defense.  So, as long as Romine can show in Spring Training that he's a decent catcher behind the plate....IMO, he should be the starting catcher.

1. Ichrio RF


2. Jeter SS


3. Cano 2B


4. Morse DH


5. Tex 1b


6. Rommie C


7. Granderson CF


8. Youk 3B


9. Gardner LF


Yankees need to start getting younger I honestly don't know what their plan is but they need to throw a few young kids in the mix.  Adding Rommie and Morse in this year.......they just got younger.

6. Rommie C....I wonder what the odds of a 22 year old catcher with injury issues, that didn't hit particularly well last year in aaa (.213/.296) will:


(1) make the club...


(2) Make the club as the starting catcher


(3) bat 6th and hit ahead of Granderson & Youkilis

I know the odds are low but the Yankees just keep looking in a basement when it comes to players.  If the Yankees survived with Martin as their catcher I'm sure the kid would or could be fine and yes I'm well aware of his injury and his lack of a full season at the big AAA but today it seem that a lot of teams are putting their good kids at AA instead of AAA.  With that said I put Rommie there becuase of the L vs R thing also for some protecting.  Knowing the Granderson strikes out a lot but also knowing that a 40 hr guy is coming up behind Rommie could mean better pitcher for Rommie.  You is what he is a replacement player at this point in his life and not a bad #8 hitter but surley not a # 5 or 6 hitter.  So what does it boil down to spring training becuase anyone could win a starting position when givin the chance and I'm all for Rommie right now because as of now they don't have a catcher.



Keep in mnd that nobody told Rommie no yet which means he's going to be right there with everyone else fighting for the starting job.  So to say as of right now the answer is no with Rommie is wrong because he's going to be fighting for that roll come spring training.  He even wins if he slpits the starting job with either Ste or Cerv.
