DH Kenny Lofton!

Given that:

a) Ruben Sierra and Tony Clark are hit-or-miss batters (literally) who've killed the Yankees in big situations in the last two games, and
b) Whoever Boston starts tomorrow, whether Wakefield or Lowe, will be most vulnerable to contact hitters who can steal bases, and will be able to take advantage of free swingers who're looking to hit home runs,

It seems clear that:

a) The Yankees have to start Kenny Lofton over Sierra at DH
b) If they don't do that there's a real possibility that they'll lose
c) If they lose because they DH'd Sierra, Torre will be fired
d) And frankly, he should be fired if he does do that and we lose.
