Now that the Yankees have home-field locked up for the post-season, and there’s nothing riding on these last two games, does Torre bat Cano and Jeter one-two in the line-up to help them with the race for the batting crown?
I think Joe will not move Cano up – because it probably helps him not to get a lot of ABs at this point. And, if anything, I bet Torre bats Jeter third now – to try and get him 100 RBI for the season.
And, unless the batting race is close on Sunday, or if Jeter has 99 RBI, I would be shocked to see either of them playing the last game of the season.
All things concerned, including the weather forecast, that’s going to be some line-up on the field for Sunday’s game.
