Nice to see you back, Bama. I hope dodging hurricanes isn't too exhausting.
With the holes everyone has in their lineups -- the Twins can't hit, the Yankees have no CF and a suspect bullpen, the Indians have limited bench moves and little post-season experience, the A's have some problems scoring right now as well -- the best team in the AL appears to be the Angels.

Yankees have a guy in center now. they just picked up Lawton from the Cubs, who got him from the Pirates at the deadline.

Lawton won't be playing center though he will play left and Matsui will be moving to center.

Well, Lawton is actually starting in RF today with Bernie in center, Matsui in left and Sheff at DH, but Lawton is not a CFer. He has not played an inning of CF since 2000 and CF was Matsui's position before coming to the Yankees. He moved to left in deference to Bernie already being in center. Overall Matsui has much more experience playing CF than Lawton does.

Matt Lawton is not a center fielder. He can play either left or right pretty well and can hit a little bit. Were I the Yankees, I'd put Mattie in left, Matsui in center and leave Sheff in right. Bernie can DH once in a while.

That is supposed to be the plan, at least that is what they were saying on the FOX pre-game today.
