Isn't the most classic 1,2 the Yankees could bat, based on current roster, Gardner-Didi?
Hicks is a better hitter, better at getting on base and probably strikes out less then Gardy. I’m terms of classic lineups go..
Judge/GCS/Sanchez should be rotating DH every game.
Torreyes may or may not be starting, if he is then u can bat him 9th. 4th outfielder is either Frazier or Gardy. Who starts at 3B? Adjuar? (Sp?) is Drury going to start? What’s up with Torres? Will he start in the minors(probably) Bird looking suspect.
Curious to see how it all comes together.
4th OF is Ellsbury, unless he starts season on DL. Then it's who knows? McKinney? Wade, the super utility role? It's pretty interesting to think how the whole thing plays out. My guess - not batting order, but lineup - the hitters. The SP/RP seems set except for last reliever
1B - Bird
2B- Drury (until Torres gets called up in a month)
SS - Didi
3B - Andujar
LF - Garder
CF - Hicks
RF - Judge
C - Sanchez
Bench: C - Romine, Inf/OF - Wade, Ellsbury (or McKinney), Tyler Austin (gut feeling) - Lind over Austin (*edited)
One month later - Torres is called up, Drury joins Wade as versatile bench guy, McKinney or Austin sent down (depending on Ellsbury health)
edit - my reasoning is cost control of Torres, that Wade provides real SS/2B skills but can play OF, Drury had 3B/2B skills, Stanton winds up being another OF'er, Austin because he can play 1B and OF.
Or Lind beats out Austin. I think Austin is better than his numbers show in limited time.
Oh, Lind bats left. Austin will have to kill spring training to beat him out.
