Yankees who have hit cleanup since the start of 2004: 

Alex Rodriguez
Robinson Cano
Mark Teixeira
Andruw Jones
Nick Swisher
Curtis Granderson
Jorge Posada
Marcus Thames
Hideki Matsui
Xavier Nady
Shelley Duncan
Jason Giambi
Bobby Abreu
Gary Sheffield
Tino Martinez
Ruben Sierra
Bernie Williams

And, tonight, Steve Pearce,who has slugged .372 in 679 plate appearances spread out over a six-year career. But he was hitting .318/.419/.568 in Triple-A this year, and he has a career .523 slugging percentage in the minors, so what the heck. You could be disgusted, but might as well try to be amused.

Are you asking me? No. Sam always has something up in his sleeve. I bet the order actually mean something worthy decoding. This article means a lot, at least to me.

Which one of these is not like the others? Or: Girardi, you Goonie!

It is unusual for a player to be waived by the Orioles, sent to the minors by the Astros and bat cleanup for the Yankees in the same season.
