Look what people have to say about the RLYW!

CAIRO just takes the Marcels and changes the underlying assumptions and components in a bunch of ways that make the Yankees look better.

Wow, two stupid posts in one day. I think you’ve reached your yearly quota.

I don’t know if any of you current posters were around for that, but if so, I just can’t understand how you can call yourselves Yankee fans. Pathetic quitters is what you sounded like. Of the lame posts I could stand to read, the only person who had any confidence in the Yankees at that point was a (yeesh) Red Sox fan.
Jeter is King

Quite the attitude you have SG. Maybe you should shitcan this blog and join Steve at WasWatching? Or follow some other stupid team that has made the PS 15 of the last 17 years. Jeez… and some people think Yankee fans are entitled.

North Jersey: Yankees hitting coach: No set lineup at camp

Could Brett Gardner hit leadoff against all pitchers?

Could Derek Jeter wind up further down the order?

“I think we need to [experiment]. It’s important we throw all the options out there,” said hitting coach Kevin Long, speaking in general terms in a phone interview from Arizona earlier this week.

“I wouldn’t say we have a set lineup going into camp,” Long said. “We’ll toy with it.”

Long has a full pre-camp calendar of visits with his hitters – including Jeter, who is coming off his worst offensive season.

“The ball’s in his court right now,” said Long, who has exchanged text messages with Jeter about setting up a pre-camp session, probably in Tampa, Fla. “It’s something I haven’t had to do [meeting with Jeter] because he’s been so good.”

I’d like to see Gardner leading off, at least against RHP.  I can’t see the Yankees platooning Jeter at leadoff so if the trade-off is moving him down in the order permanently sign me up for that. 

Ignoring platoon splits, here are what look like the best projected lineups the Yankees can use according to CAIRO and the Baseball Musings Lineup Tool.

I’ve assumed that Russell Martin will start the year as the primary catcher, but obviously that could change. 

Some of these scenarios are unrealistic, like Mark Teixeira “leadoff hitter”, but I found it interesting that overall the most common ‘best’ lineup had Cano batting cleanup.  It does look like Gardner should lead off against RHP and Jeter should lead off against LHP, assuming Martin’s not a viable candidate there.
