With the lineup posted above, it gives Torre the L-R combination he likes...

Tough to bring in a whole lot of specialists to face that lineup.

Here's a clip of Joe Torre talking to WFAN on 2/10/06 (about 20 min. long). He briefly discussed his lineup, saying he has no idea how he's going to handle lineup spots 3 thru 6 yet.

It's really hard to project the Yankee lineup. Giambi is good again, but he was so streaky last year. When he's hot I think Torre will put him 3rd because of his high OBP. When he's cold, he's getting dropped in the order.

yeah, the problem with projecting the Yankee's lineup is that they've managed to purchase 4 #3 hitters.
