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.

    Napoli? Didnt he have 20 hr for the Angels in about 350 pas or so?

    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.
