I don't understand why Granderson is playing and Gardner isn't. Gardner actually knows how to hit a lefty.

Also, I don't like the way Berkman automatically sits vs LHP. He's had a bad year but a much better career vs LHP.

I agree Kearns stinks...Should of been Gardner...I don't mind Thames DH'ing seeing how brutal Berk has been against lefties this year.

YO bosstradamus, my thoughs via the girardi thread, too lazy to rethink it again .......

i actually like this lineup alot, including leaving jorge and a rod in there. we now face FOUR (!!) LHPs in a row, so girardi will have to mix and match his platoons based on matchups. granderson has struggled more vs cj wilson (tomorrow) than lester (albeit in 2 AB SSS), so my guess is curtis sits tomorrow nite. plus, brett has really struggled from the plate, so resting BG doesn't seem like a bad idea. and curtis hits #9 in deference to his general LHP suckitude.

Might have something to do with Gardner's 2-22 August with 0 BB and 9 Ks.
Or that his aveage has dropped from .322 on june 22 to .283 now.

True grandy sucks against lefties too but with the addition of Kearns I kind of expect one of Granderson/Gardner to sit v most lefites and they will likely alternate those days on the pine. Just a guess.

YESSIR!

Agreed. Gardner has been struggling badly for the last couple weeks. He could use a day off.

So you guys still want Granderson in there instead of Gardner.

Disgusting.

your right its so frustrating the yankees buying that hes a everyday player. Even though hes fast, he is not a good defensive outfielder and he has never been a good hitter either. He just wowed people because he played in big comerica park and had many triples, covered a lot of ground in that spacious outfield and displayed power. hes nothing but a 4th outfielder and always has.

Granderson sucks and ought to be benched. Permanently. He belongs on a losing team where he can hit .240 and nobody cares.

And Girardi should be fired for not pinch hitting Berkman for Granderson in the 7th.
