How come Fukudome bats in the 2-hole tonight?? Just a gut feeling for Lou??

From Lou’s pregame press conference:

Q. Your starting lineup and DeRosa and your right field situation?
LOU PINIELLA: We went with our good defense in the outfield. I’m hoping that Fukudome swings the bat well, I think he’s certainly very capable of it. The fact that DeRosa also had that little strain in the calf, second base is a little easier for him. But the big thing here is putting the good defense on the field, and Fukudome to me is as good a right fielder as there is in the league, and at the same time he’s very capable of swinging the bat. We’ve given him a good rest, and he should be ready to go.
