Someone owes Nick Swisher a million dollars

I’m not at the stadium again today, but last night Nick Swisher told reporters that he would bet $1 million that Derek Jeter would be in the lineup after hurting his hamstring yesterday. Of course, Swisher was right.

Derek Jeter SS
Nick Swisher RF
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Marcus Thames DH
Francisco Cervelli C
Curtis Granderson CF
Kevin Russo LF

There are a lot of things about the bottom of that lineup that would have been tough to predict a year ago.

Also, the Indians have reportedly claimed Shane Lindsay off waivers. Lindsay was a member of the Yankees organization for about 30 seconds earlier this month. Turns out today is the start of a new month. Who knew?
