well...that's an article from Brendan Roberts @ sportingnews.com

I still want to see what Torre has to say about it before I jump to any conclusions.

I agree...I can't imagine a 40/40 candidtate hitting 8th, even for the Yankees...Soriano's bat is too valuable to have him hitting that low.

It makes sense, either him or Lofton will find their way to the lower portion, and Lofton is more of a "lead-off" guy then Soriano.

In and ideal situation, maybe he does bat 7th or 8th for the Yanks due to his lack of plate discipline. He was actually great hitting ninth a couple of years ago due to the back to back speed at bottom and top of lineup. But the Yanks have Giambi, Sheffield, and Bernie in the middle of the lineup. All are great hitters but all are very injury prone as well. I predict he starts the season in a lower spot but with first injury gets moved to 5th or 6th depending on pitcher.

I don't put much stock into it. If Lofton gets hurt or slumps, I'm sure he'll get bumped down to the bottom of the order. Jeter's probably the only sure thing to be in the top 3 of the order. And even if Soriano hits lower in that lineup, will it matter a whole lot? He'll still be top 2B material. Heck, I could hit in front of him or behind him, and he's still going to be a top selection.

and don't forget about Bernie Williams. I'm sure there are going to be times when Giambi needs a break and will move to DH and Bernie will move to the Outfield and that basically bumps Lofton.
