I think he was batting very low in the lineup for most, if not all, of last year. There is some truth to that though, I believe he was hitting 9th for much of the year and had protection from Damon behind him. This year he has Doug M 8-o .

The Yankees would benefit from moving him back to the 2 hole. Damon-Cano-Jeter-A-Rod-Giambi-Abreu would be the smart play for the lineup.

Abreu froze up on a fastball down the middle yesterday to lose the game. I dislike him
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

You mean that Rivera threw a beach ball down the middle to Beltre yesterday to lose the game...

Having Abreu hit that low wouldn't be a smart move at all. He's consistently one of the best OBP guys in the league. He needs to hit at the top of the order, especially before the big boys.

I also just looked and noticed that Abreu hasn't walked in like 15 games. Coincides with his horrible slump pretty nicely. :-°

That and Cano just isn't that good yet. No way he should be getting my at bats a game than guys like ARod.

I'd like to see him hitting 9th again like last year.

Posada is a patient hitter. He'll be fine with nothing behind him.

Abreu is one of the streakest guys, and he used to be a slow starter (not last year as I remember). He'll be fine.

Seems like the ice from Torre's head finally thawed out...He should've been hitting 7th and Giambi 3rd a week and a half, two weeks ago.
