MLB All Time New York Team
This is the All Time New York team
Lets see this team will have:
9 Starters in the line up
5 man rotation
And a back up for each position.
Oh yeah defense played no part in creating the team, so that way we could be fair to both teams.
This article might brew up some debate, but please bbe respectful when commenting and not use insults
C. Mike Piazza
Games in NY
The greatest offensive catcher of All Time, Mike Piazza is your catcher.
He no doubt is going to the HOF on first ballot, he impressed everyone in NY with his great power for nearly a decade.
In 8 seasons he hit over 20 HR 6 times and had 100 RBI a couple of times and 6 times hit at least .280.
1B. Lou Gehrig
The greatest first basemen of All Time is you NY All Time first basemen.
Unfortunatly he was taken from us too young, but the legacy he left behind will live on forever.
13 times scored 100+ Runs, 8 times had over 200 Hits, 13 times had 20+ HR and only 3 tiems hit under .300.
Truly a All Time great.
2B. Robinson Cano
Current Yankees second basemen is your starting 2B.
The Yankees and Mets are very weak at this position, and one day Cano will belong on this list.
No one else really jumped out at me when I looked at their numbers.
In 5 seasons Cano has hit higher then .290 4 times, he drove in 70 Runs 3 time ( 4 times if you include this year) and never had more then 85 K's.
SS. Derek Jeter
The Yankee captain Derek Jeter is your starting SS.
Since 1998 he has the most Hits in MLB and since then he has had 6 times 200+ hit seasons.
11 times he hit over .300 and has a life time .BA over .380%.
3B. David Wright
David Wright is the starting 3B.
He beat out A- Rod because when Alex came to NY he was in his prime, David is just getting into his prime. So, he can still grow.
David has 4 100 RBI seasons in 6 seasons and 4 20+ HR seasons. 4 150 Hit seasons as well.
OF. Mickey Mantle
The greatest switch - hitter of All Time is one of your NY OF.
The great number 7 was the most dominate player of his era along with Willie Mays.
14 times he launched 20+ HR in a seasons and 6 times he hit 35+ HR.
8 times he had a OPS over 1.000 and he was a 3 time MVP.
OF. Joe DiMaggio
Jolton Joe is also in the All Time NY OF.
DiMaggio played 13 seasons but lost 3 seasons to serve in war, those 4 seasons were when he was 28, 29 and 30.
Even though he had to serve duty he still ended his career with 9 100 RBI seasons, 11 20+ HR seasons and hit under .300 2 times.
Oh yeah he never struck out more then 36 times in a season.
OF. Carlos Beltran
Stats in NY
One of the true 5- Tool CF in the game today is your final OF, in basically 4 full seasons and a quarter of a season he has been pretty impressive.
In 4 full seasons he hit over 20 + HR 3 times, 3 100 RBI seasons, 150+ Hit seasons 4 times and also 5 times as a Met stole 15+ bases.
DH. Babe Ruth
Stats in NY
The Babe is your NY All Time DH, and he is your greatest player of All Time.
He was ridiculously great, he never hit less 22 HR and 11 times had 100+ RBI.
Oh yeah he never hit less then .288 in any of his years with NY.
I still can't get over he had a streak of 8 straight 1.000 OPS seasons.
