What do you think of this line-up?
I presumed that Chris Stewart would start behind the dish today because of his familiarity with CC Sabathia from last season.
Also, I wish that skipper Joe Girardi would swap Ichiro Suzuki and Brett Gardner. Gardner has tended to strikeout more when leading off. He was also injured all last season too, and with Ichiro’s decade long experience as leadoff in Seattle it just makes more sense to me.
I do like what Girardi did in the middle of the order because he has protected Robinson Cano the best way possible.
