2011 Yankees lineup projection, take 1

I know it’s early, but here’s what I have in mind at this point for the 2011 Yankees lineup:

1. Brett Gardner LF
2. Curtis Granderson CF
3. Robinson Cano 2B
4. Alex Rodriguez 3B
5. Mark Teixeira 1B
6. Adam Dunn DH
7. Derek Jeter SS
8. Nick Swisher RF
9. Jorge Posada C

I know, I know, Jeter hitting seventh looks terrible. But it’s going to happen at some point, so why not start after the worst year of his career? I think he has a chance to work his way back into the leadoff spot, but Gardner proved he has a lot of qualities of a great leadoff hitter in 2010: speed, patience and OBP.
