Berkman to hit 2nd in Yankees lineup

Lance Berkman was the first to tell the world he’ll be hitting second in the Yankees lineup in an interview on MLB Network. I originally expected him to hit sixth, keeping Nick Swisher in the No. 2 spot that he’s found comfort in, but I guess Joe Girardi has a little more respect for Berkman, 34, than I do.

Here’s the new-look lineup; Berkman essentially takes Nick Johnson’s spot and Jorge Posada takes a full day off.

Derek Jeter SS
Lance Berkman DH
Mark Teixeira 1B
Alex Rodriguez 3B
Robinson Cano 2B
Nick Swisher RF
Curtis Granderson CF
Francisco Cervelli C
Brett Gardner LF

Do you agree with Girardi moving down the hot Swisher to make room for Berkman?
