The Yankees Lineup and Infield w/ Chase Headley

Chase Headley is back in the fold in the Yankees infield which simplifies and pretty much etches in stone New York’s plan for the infield defense. Let’s take a quick look here at what the Yankees lineup and infield defense may/will look like in 2015.

1B: Mark Teixeira
2B: Martin Prado
SS: Didi Gregorius
3B: Chase Headley
C: Brian McCann
DH: Alex Rodriguez

BN: Brendan Ryan
BN: Jose Pirela
BN: John Ryan Murphy

  1. 1.       Brett Gardner
  2. 2.       Martin Prado
  3. 3.       Jacoby Ellsbury
  4. 4.       Brian McCann
  5. 5.       Mark Teixeira
  6. 6.       Carlos Beltran
  7. 7.       Chase Headley
  8. 8.       Alex Rodriguez
  9. 9.       Didi Gregorius


  1. I don't think there is any way that Rodriguez bats 8th...he should, but I don't think it will happen.

    1. Gardner
    2. Prado
    3. Ellsbury
    4. McCann
    5. Rodriguez
    6. Beltran
    7. Teixeira
    8. Headley
    9. Gregorius

    1. Until he proves he CAN"T do the job! I would start him out there, rather than insult him right at the start.
      I don't know about you guys but I am hoping he is back to being at the minimum, a bit above avg.! He needs 47 hrs to be 4th in line and 100 hits to go over 3,000 hits, as a power hitter...that ain't to bad!!

    2. I don't think the Yankees nor Joe Girardi have any respect for A Rod, have shown any respect to A Rod or will show any respect to A Rod.

      If the team wont even guarantee him a position what makes you think they bat him 5th KNepper?

    3. Hell, they show more respect for Big Popi and Roger Clemens than for their own.
      If I ever wanted someone to get their sh-t together, I would give them something above their position, pay attention to the way they act with the responsibility.

      Perception of A-Rod is the only thing they can see! He is going to have a hard job convincing them he can help the team win. He can convince the players much easier. But, it is what it is!

    4. I'm an A Rod fan, the #13 still hangs in my Yankees man room, so I hope more than most that he comes out of the gates and forces Girardi's hand into playing him. The problem is I can't see him getting enough opportunities to do it.


Sorry for the Capatcha... Blame the Russians :)
