Jeter to bat leadoff, Damon second?

Tom Verducci makes some very good points about Jeter being a better leadoff candidate for the Yankees than Damon, but The most telling point is down at the bottom. If Cano bats ninth, having Damon bat first leads you to a left, left situation Torre would rather avoid in late inning situations.

Torre has probably considered this already and so I'm going to come down on Tom Verducci's side on this one. Damon will bat second in New York. - Writers - Tom Verducci: The Yankees' best leadoff hitter - Tuesday February 14, 2006 12:10PM
but Derek Jeter is a better leadoff batter than Damon.
