ALCS Game 2 lineups: The Derek Jeter-less Yankees
Lineups for Game 2 of the ALCS between the Tigers and Yankees have been posted. Behold the sight of a Yankee playoff lineup without Derek Jeter.
NEW YORK -- From what is, at this moment, the most important chalkboard in baseball, here are your lineups for Game 2 of the ALCS:
The Tigers will run out their usual lineup versus right-handers, which mostly means that Quintin Berry replaces Avisail Garcia at an outfield corner and Alex Avila takes over catching duties from Gerald Laird.
And speaking of lineups, here's what the Yankees' postseason lineup looked like the last time Derek Jeter wasn't in it:
1 - Wade Boggs, 3B
2 - Bernie Williams, CF
3 - Paul O'Neill, RF
4 - Ruben Sierra, DH
5 - Don Mattingly, 1B
6 - Dion James, LF
7 - Mike Stanley, C
8 - Tony Fernandez, SS
9 - Randy Velarde, 2B
That would be Game 5 of the 1995 ALDS.
Also worth noting is that in that game, a rookie failed starter-turned middle reliever took over for David Cone in the eighth. His name was Mariano Rivera.
It's been a while, to say the least.
