LOWELL, MA – The Lowell Spinners want you to cast your vote as they try to round out the roster in the Most Hated Yankee Line-up competition. Cast your vote to let them know which shortstop is more disliked: Derek Jeter or Bucky "Bleepin" Dent.

The Spinners, Class A Affiliate of the Boston Red Sox, have been leading the charge to find out the “Most Hated Yankee Line-Up” of all-time amongst Red Sox fans and are nearing the end of the campaign. Each week the Spinners have allowed fans to vote by position.

This week features the much anticipated showdown at the shortstop position pitting Derek Jeter vs. Bucky Dent. Tuesday night Dent is expected to be a special guest on WCAP to talk about who he thinks will win the title of "Most Hated" between him and Jeter.
