Kearns or Gardner or Granderson

Joe Girardi has to decide about his starting outfield for Game 1.  Nick Swisher is a fixture in right, but then it could get dicey. 

Does Girardi dare bench Curtis Granderson, one of the hottest Yankees in September, due to Granderson's 4-for-22, 12-strikeout history against Francisco Liriano?

That would move Brett Gardner (3-for-9, three RBIs) to center and place Austin Kearns (2-for-5) in right. 

Or, Girardi could  leave Granderson in center and chose between the other two in left.

We'll all found out when lineups are posted a bit later.  .
