A Horseless Lineup

via LoHud: 

1) Brett Gardner LF
2) Derek Jeter SS
3) Mark Teixeira 1B
4) Robinson Cano 2B
5) Nick Swisher RF
6) Lance Berkman DH
7) Jorge Posada C
8) Curtis Granderson CF
9) Ramiro Pena 3B

Apparently Joe is "playing it safe" with the A-Horse tonight, giving him a night of oats and a good brushing in his stable rather than a 3rd straight game on wear and tear on his body.  Can't argue with that logic when the team is still 2.5 up on the Rays and has back-to-back big series' against the Rangers and Rays after the Orioles leave town.  Better to keep those 4 legs fresh for when the Yankees really need them.

At least Gardner is back in the leadoff spot tonight...
