    I wonder if Austin and Wade will be in a platoon with with Walker playing 2B v lefties and 1B v righties.

    Three consecutive right handed batters? Girardi's head would have exploded! I like Boone's lineup.

    I believe that is the current plan for now.

    I thought I read that Boone might give Austin some starts against RHP but I prefer the platoon option.

    Walker hits better v RHP and can't play every day so it makes sense to give Austin a few starts v RHP on days they want to rest Walker.

    Edit my brain must be addled I realize what I posted doesn't make much sense.

    Going against Happ, I think Hicks is going to be batting from the right side as well, so make that 4 in a row Definitely the oppo-Girardi lineup here.

    Tangentially related to the Yankees, just saw Lindgren is having TJS again. I feel bad for him

    I like the lineup. Even the bottom of the order is quite respectable.

    This makes me feel like a kid on Christmas eve again, its a similar feeling, hard to sleep knowing tomorrow you get to unpack the presents. The excitement, the anticipation, its like Xmas eve for adults.

    How so? Against LHP, Girardi would regularly start a RHH heavy lineup.

    On June 8th against David Price, his starting lineup was:

    Gardner
    Hicks
    Judge
    Holiday
    Castro
    Sanchez
    Didi
    Headley
    Carter

    Eight RHH, with only Didi as a LHH. Once he batted, the lineup went eight RHH before a LHH.

    Definitely don't think Gardner should be leading off against a lefty.

    Ideally that changes as time goes on.

    Hopefully, Gardner won't be in the leadoff spot against many lefties, but he does have the best numbers against Happ out of anyone in the lineup (9/31, 5XBH), so I think his spot in the batting order is justified for tomorrow.

    I think Hicks is flying under the radar & will be a BEAST this year.

    (other post pointed it out Gardner is LHH) Just want to add. The other point Joe G did was look at the numbers against the opposing pitcher. I think this is why we see Gardner leading off against Happ (300) but I do like seeing Gardy lead off opening day. We should see Hicks leading off against LHP a lot in the future.

    We will miss Castro, a 300 hitter at 2B. I was hoping for a big year from Bird, but that's history now. We shall see!

    With all due respect, this is fake news. Against lefty pitchers it was not uncommon for Joe to bat three righties in a row. Joe is gone, no need to make stuff up to justify his termination.

    I think it was a dig at one our former forum members who was eventually banned from the group. I found it pretty amusing.
