Joe Girardi is known for changing things around, using different players on different days and tweaking his lineup. However, in 2012, Joe needs to make a basic lineup and stick with it. 

For the sake of this article, the starting positions will be:

C: Russel Martin

1B: Mark Teixeira

2B: Robinson Cano

SS: Derek Jeter

3B: Alex Rodriguez 

LF:Brett Gardner 

CF: Curtis Granderson

RF: Nick Swisher 

DH: Jesus Montero 


When you look at this Yankee lineup, just when you think you’re about to hit a weak spot, you get another guy who is is well capable of hitting close to .300 or knocking in 20 bombs a year. It is relentless, to say the least.
