Tigers at Yankees, April 29, Sunday lineups

Because that last post we did with the lineups was quite successful, I think we'll give it another shot today. This may be a new feature. It may not be. It's going to depend on how useful you guys find it and if it's worth our time. So please let us know what you think.

At first glance, you might think, "Wow, is Jim Leyland even trying? What an awful lineup." But it appears the Tigers are trotting out a lineup that features quite a few right-handed batters to face the Yankees' left-handed throwing CC Sabathia. So far this year, right-handers have hit .273 with .713 OPS against Sabathia while left-handers are batting .150 with .650 OPS. This is a continuation of Sabathia's 2012 splits, where right-handers had .709 OPS vs. .554 for right-handers. So it seems like a good idea to me.

The Baseball Reference statistical preview has a lot of cool info, too.
