Breaking News: Shelley Duncan Promoted to the MLB

Shelley Duncan has been called up to the Yankees. It is unknown when he will arrive. This will allow the Yankees to give more players rests AND not use Eric Hinske as much. Also, Brett Gardner has been activated and is in the game one starting lineup.

Here is the lineup:

1. Jeter SS
2. Swisher RF
3. Teixeira 1B
4. Rodriguez 3B
5. Cano 2B
6. Posada C
7. Hinske DH
8. Cabrera LF
9. Gardner CF

As of now I’m thinking Shelley will be brought back next year in a Hinske type role if he plays well enough. SWB is messed up right now, as they have no good hitters or pitchers at this point. Gotta feel bad for John Rodriguez as he has stated it is his dream to play in the Bronx. Similar #’s to Shelley, but no need for two of them. Likely won’t reach that dream.

    Good stuff. I wonder, if Duncan plays well, will he get a shot next year playing RF and DH? I mean, he won the International League MVP. And with Matsui leaving, I wonder if the Yanks have a mind to try him in the DH-RF spot.

I'm adding this comment to the actual post now.
