I thought this poll was appropriate due to the spectacular play of the young players of the Yankees. They may not have the Brauns or Longorias, but their scrappy play cannot go unnoticed.
I think the Yankees best young player with the exception of Joba Chamberlain is Brett Gardner. This is because I think he is a huge threat on the bases with his remarkable speed. He is also 6th on the team with an OBP of .367. He is also 5th in the AL with 17 stolen bases (tied with his teammate Derek Jeter and Bobby Abreu,) and everybody ahead of him has at least 100 more at-bats than he does. Look at him as a potential Rookie of the Year canidate.
