Poll Results: Brett Gardner should hit leadoff

poll results60

The majority of my readers agree with me! I’m surprised only 25 percent stuck up for Derek Jeter to hit leadoff, but I’m glad to see people supporting Brett Gardner.

A family friend reiterated an important point in the comments of a post about this poll: Gardner led the Yankees in on-base percentage last season. That has to be a key statistic Joe Girardi uses in determining his leadoff hitter.

I’m curious to see where Jeter will wind up hitting in the order if not leadoff. I predict seventh, but it’s possible we could see him hit second like old times.

Next poll: Is Andy Pettitte a Hall of Famer?
