In the 111-year history of the New York Yankees, no other team has won more World Championships (27 - an average of one every four to five years). In fact, no other franchise in any sport has been as successful as the Bronx Bombers.
To achieve such success, an organization has to have a wealth of talent and a long line of great managers to properly use that talent. In this slide show, I will attempt to identify the very best of the best at each position for this proud franchise and it will become clear that over several eras, the Yankees have had the greatest pool of talent.
The standard that they have set at each position is so high that many of my choices excluded Hall of Fame inductees. I realize that my selections can be debated as everyone has their own opinions but I've attempted to be as objective as is possible for any die hard Yankee fan.
