Yankees lineup vs. Astros; Joe Girardi not likely to leave New York for Chicago

Scott Halleran

We've made it to Game 162. The long, winding, and painful road that has been the 2013 Yankees is finally over. We've said goodbye to Mariano Rivera and Andy Pettitte and now all that's left is to get this David Huff start over with. The final lineup is out and it's definitely something to behold:

Eduardo Nunez is the leadoff hitter and mans third base and J.R. Murphy is behind the plate and hitting second. Curtis Granderson, Vernon Wells, and Mark Reynolds make up the heart of the lineup. Travis Hafner makes his return to the team for no good reason. David Adams is at second base, Brenan Ryan is the shortstop, and Zoilo Almonte is in right field. We've seen the last of Lyle Overbay, Ichiro Suzuki, Chris Stewart in 2013, and Robinson Cano might have already played his last game as a Yankee.

There has been talk about whether or not Joe Girardi will leave New York for Chicago. That doesn't seem to be the case. He doesn't find Chicago all that appealing, now that his father has passed away. He also doesn't want to move his whole family to a place they aren't familiar with.
