In honor of the year Robinson Cano is having (.368 Batting Average, 13 Home Runs, 47 RBI), it got me thinking that if Cano keeps this pace up, where will it rank amongst the greatest Yankee seasons of all-time?
We still got a long ways to go, and there's still a lot of baseball to be played, so I will re-address that question towards the end of the season.
But for now, the important question that I was pondering about was related to Mount Rushmore.
Don't worry - I am not giving a history lesson about the four presidents who's faces are on the mount, but rather, I found myself asking the question, if were carving a Yankees Mount Rushmore which four Yankee legends would get the nod?
Would it be the Babe or the Mick? Lou Gehrig or Joe DiMaggio? Mariano Rivera or Don Larsen? Jorge Posada or Yogi Berra? How about the Boss?
The list can go on and on, and narrowing it down to a final four was not an easy task.
However, after deciphering long and hard about whom to chose, my mission was accomplished.
You might agree with me, but in all likelihood, there will be a player you felt I left out, that deserved to be here.
Feel free to give your opinion.
Let the adventure of climbing "Yankees Mount Rushmore" begin.
