Yankees vs. Angels: Who swings the lumber?

Here’s a visual comparison of tonight’s Game 1 batting orders for the Yanks and Halos.  The Yankee lineup is filled with big numbers and big names, but the lesser-known Kendry Morales stands tall with the Yankees’ top sluggers.  Unfortunately, there isn’t a lot of power elsewhere in the lineup, especially with Mike Scioscia’s choice of Jeff Mathis over Mike Napoli.

  1. Hey Kevin, I followed your comment over at the NYT Live Analysis. Came by to check you out and I have this to say: nice job, dude! I’ll link to this article from my humble yet awesome blog here at WP

  2. Sorry I see you were comparing the lineups NOT the rosters! I love defense but I think starting Mathis over Napoli is evidence that Scioscia is not as good as a manager has some make him out to be.
