Joe Girardi said there will be no surprises in his Opening Day lineup. Hell use the same group that started those late spring games, with Nick Swisher batting sixth and Raul Ibanez seventh.
The lineup will change on Saturday, with Girardi planning to start Eduardo Nunez at shortstop or third while giving either Alex Rodriguez or Derek Jeter an early DH day. Thats going to be the regular plan against lefties. Might as well do it in Game Two against David Price.
For those of you who love numbers…
Chris Stewart will be wearing No. 19, David Phelps is No. 41 and Clay Rapada is No. 39.
