The Ducc Sez...Bat Jeter first.

SI's Tom Verducci gave that piece of advice in his latest on-line column. He sites stats and compares Jeter and Damon at the top of the line-up. It goes against the conventional wisdom and he makes a compelling case. I'm sure either way will work and we'll see some retooling if necessary. To be honest, I don't think it matters where anyone bats in this line-up. Remember, A-Rod batted second for a good chunk of last season and he still drove in 130 runs.
