Really smart move Torre. First off this makes the bottom of the lineup more formidable. Second, It's a great motivational ploy by Joe. Torre's has nothing to lose by making this move. If it doesn't work, It hasn't been working anyway but if it does. Then that's great.

Bwaa. Your surprised.
Since Torre was willing to make such drastic changes for such an important game (which I'm fine with) I would have went a step further.
First off Soriano should NOT be batting lead off tonight. Pedro owns this dude, Soriano is a strikeout machine against him. We need a guy who will work Pedro early inthe line up and who has a great chance of getting on base.
My lineup would have been something like
2 - NJ
3 - Bernie
4 - Soriano (It will be hit or miss with soriano here. He'll either strike out, or get a hold a one and send it a long way hopefully with runnners on)
6 - Matsui
7 - Giambi
9 - Garcia
