Lineup up...

Same lineup as last night, with Dellucci leading off and Soriano hitting 5th, behind Teixeira in the #3 spot and Blalock in the #4 spot.

I like this arrangement much better than the old lineup, with Hidalgo hitting 5th and Soriano leading off. Soriano's awful OBP makes him better suited to hit behind the power hitters, and Hidalgo is, appropriately, riding the pine. Dellucci, meanwhile, needs to be hitting leadoff as long as he keeps getting on base as much as he has been recently.
