The surprising way that Aaron Boone will place Stanton and Judge in the line-up

This is not what we expected

It looks like that Aaron Judge and Giancarlo Stanton will not be hitting back to back homers this year, as the New York Yankees manager, Aaron Boone, is willing to put a lefty between the two sluggers, but nothing is decided yet, according to the manager.

 

According to Mike Mazzeo of the New York Daily News, Boone said this Tuesday that he still does not have a clear candidate to put on that spot but in the perfect circumstances, this will be the preferred line-up, as he stated to the media:

In a perfect world, I would have a lefty splitting them up. I think it would be nice but I’m not married to it yet. I think in an ideal situation, I would have a lefty in there. But nothing’s certain, and again it could be a matchup thing, it could be a team’s bullpen, how we view that matching up against us in games

 

In previous games, Boone placed Greg Bird between Stanton and Judge, but he's also keen to put Gigi Gregorious in that spot or even Gary Sanchez, Brett Gardner or Aaron Hicks. By now, as the situation stands and all the names that have been thrown in, it seems that Boone does not have a decision made and he will have his final say over the next few weeks.
