Opening Day Lineup

Brett Gardner CF
Eduardo Nunez SS
Robinson Cano 2B
Kevin Youkilis 1B
Vernon Wells LF
Ben Francisco DH
Ichiro Suzuki RF
Jayson Nix 3B
Francisco Cervelli C

SP: LHP CC Sabathia vs. LHP Jon Lester

I can't say that there are many surprises in the lineup. The only thing that remotely shocked me was having Ichiro bat seventh. The reasoning for that is Joe Girardi wanting to split up the lefties, which there were a lot of in the top of the order before Ichiro was moved down. I'm pretty pleased with the balance of the lineup. Now let's see if they can win with it.
