My Game 4 ALCS Lineup

Not that the Yankees brass paid any attention to my Game 3 lineup or my pre game rants on twitter that I was vilified for but hey, whatever. Here is the lineup that I am throwing out there tonight if I am Joe Girardi.

1. Ichiro Suzuki (CF)
2. Eduardo Nunez (SS)
3. Robinson Cano (2B)
4. Alex Rodriguez (3B)
5. Mark Teixeira (1B)
6. Raul Ibanez (DH)
7. Nick Swisher (RF)
8. Russell Martin (C)
9. Brett Gardner (LF)

You make this a match up managers nightmare with the alternating left handed and right handed batters, you have a nice mix of speed at the top and the bottom of the order, and in a perfect world you have the thunder in the middle. I do not want to hear about benching this guy or that guy because if you can bench Alex and you can bench Swisher then you can bench Cano or Jeter, but you wouldn't.

Let's see how far off, and how inventive, Girardi gets tonight before this win or go home game.
