Lineup Change

No Jeter.

CF Damon
LF Cabrera
1b Giambi
3b Rodriguez
DH Posada
2b Cano
SS Cairo
C Stinnett

Now, a lot of Yankee fans are mad at Torre for taking Phillips out of the lineup. I personally do not think that this is that bad of a move. Phillips is a good hitter but is not as good as Posada. The optimal move for Torre would probably be putting Phillips at 3b and giving Arod a day back in his old stomping grounds.

But the real bad move in this lineup for me is Bernie Williams. Bernie is fooling no body with his defense and his bat barely reached an .800 OPS even when he was hot.
