For what we reason thdy don't like Stanton playing the field. Maybe he can take RF till judge gets back with Frazier/Gardner splitting lf.
Idk but for some reason the still want Sanchez behind the plate. IMHO he should be permanent DH

Sanchez is less of a defensive liability than Andujar is. He is a plus catcher regarding pitch framing, as well as a (usually) good arm. I believe they are concerned about Stanton's health long term (he played through hamstring pain last year).

Plus the replacement for Sanchez (romine) is a below average hitter. The replacement for Stanton (Frazier or Gardner) are at least leauge average. Not to mention that it is somewhat risky to have both your catchers in the starting lineup, as if romine were to get hurt, in order to move Sanchez from DH to catcher, the Yankees would lose the DH for the rest of the game.

Did you also want Posada at DH?

@Dan, if anybody ever tries to give you a hard time about your World Series first pitch, just show them what this lady did!
