Gardner's not cracking the lineup...tonight.

But Jerry Hairston, Jr. is, according to Rotoworld.

Nick Swisher has been benched in favor of Jerry Hairston Jr. for Game 2 of the World Series. Hairston is 10-for-27 (.370) lifetime against Phillies starter Pedro Martinez and Swisher is 11 for his last 77 (.143) with one homer dating back to the regular season.

I guess Girardi is just SUPER in love with Brett off the bench. Well, here's hoping Hairston's career numbers against Pedro translate into success for tonight.

LoHud's got the lineups, here.

Also of note, Jose Molina - catching and batting ninth. Somebody explain to me why Cervelli's not on the roster and Bruney is? Sigh.
