Over 107 baseball seasons (but who's counting?), it's obvious that the New York Yankees have enjoyed much success. But it also appears obvious that there have been numerous players that have been lucky enough to wear the pinstripes that define the Bronx. In this rather long slideshow I will make an attempt to break down every position and give you my opinion of who the greatest player at that position is. The usual protocol for my articles go. If you disagree, want to make your point heard, or just want to comment, please do comment, because your feedback is appreciated.
Now that that's out of the way, let's get to the fun stuff.
For the position players, I will give who I think is the best player at that position, and why. Then I will list honorable mentions.
The pitching section could get tricky, so here it is. There will be five slides for starting pitchers, and one slide for a reliever. The starting pitchers are in no particular order. That wasn't too tricky, but now you understand.
I also want to clarify that all of my decisions are based on how the player played when he was here. That means that I do not factor in if a player took steroids, because I feel that would take away from the list. Having a guy who wasn't really the best player be named the best player is something I don't want to do, because it wouldn't be an accurate list.
Even if you're not a Yankee fan, take a glance at the list, just to get a little education of the greatest players of Yankee history. If you're a Red Sox fan, you'll get a good education about who you've been hating for your whole life.
Now the fun stuff. Want to know what it is? You're gonna have to view the slideshow to find out (what a cliffhanger).
