ALDS Yankees Roster

Here is a potential line-up for ALDS:

Starting Line-ups:

Jorge Posada (Catcher)
Mark Teixeira (1st Base)
Robinson Cano (2nd Base)
Alex Rodriguez (3rd Base)
Derek Jeter (Shortstop)
Johnny Damon (Left Field)
Melky Cabrera (Center Field)
Nick Swisher (Right Field)
Hideki Matsui (Designated Hitter)


Jose Molina (Catcher)
Brett Gardner (Center Field-Left Field)
Eric Hinske (Right Field-1st Base)
Jerry Hairston (Can play almost all position)
Freddy Guzman (Pinch Runner-Out Field)

Note: Jerry Hairston is questionable, i doubt if he could contribute due to his recent injury. That is why we added Freddy Guzman. His speed will be needed to pinch run in late games.

Starting Rotation:

CC Sabathia
AJ Burnett
Andy Pettitte

Note: Rotate these 3 Starting Pitchers for ALDS and let the remaining Starting pitching staff to the bullpen (Joba, Gaudin). With enough rest, CC can start ALDS game 4 if necessary and Burnett for game 5. These is the Play-offs! We can't afford another upset!

Relief Pitchers:

Joba Chamberlain
Chad Gaudin
Sergio Mitre
Damaso Marte
Alfredo Aceves
Phil Coke
Phil Hughes (Set-up)
Mariano Rivera (Closer)

Note: It's a short series. Yanks don't need to stack a lot of pitchers.
