If You Were Manager...

Last week I submitted a question to Yahoo Answers to see what you would do if you were to be the Yankees manager. After a few days of accepting answers, we have reached a winner.

If I were put "in charge" and Torre were already gone (with no hope of being re-hired) I presume I would be replacing GM Brian Cashman. I would immediately place Gene Michael "Stick" as the interem manager. I would sit down Bobby Abreu and start Melky Cabrera in right field, next would be to send Phelps and Nieves to triple A and bring up Eric Duncan and Ben Davis to take their places. I would bring in Paul O'neil as hitting coach. Batting Posada 3rd in the lineup with AROD cleanup and Matsui to protect him. My starting rotation would be Clemens, Wang, Pettitte, Hughes, Mussina. Send down Proctor, Vizcaino, and Farnsworth, and put Igawa, Bruney and Clippard in the bullpen. Giambi would need to start more games at first while working Abreu into the lineup as DH to get his confidence back. Do I have the option of activating Joe Girardi as backup catcher? He is currently a YES employee. Every day starters would be Jeter at SS, Matsui LF, AROD 3rd, Cabrera RF, Damon CF, Cano 2nd, Posada C, Giambi 1st.
1 Damon
2 Jeter
3 Posada
5 Matsui
6 Giambi
7 Cano
8 Cabrera
9 Abreu

And Mariano Rivera would close in save situations.

I have, and always will be, a true Yankees fan. Don't give me that bandwagon crap; bandwagon fans are for people who need to belong.
