New York Yankees Past and Present:  The Ultimate Lineup

If you had the ability to put together a lineup for your favorite team, using players from the franchise's history as well as the current roster, what would the lineup look like?

That's my goal: to try to create the ultimate lineup.  This time around I will see what I can come up with for the New York Yankees.

The only criteria I had for deciding who the players could be (my article, my rules) were:

- The player had to have played in at least four seasons for the franchise.

- The player must only be considered for the position he played the most games at for his career, not only limited to the Yankees (except for the designated hitter; that could be a player from any position). For an example, I couldn't put Mickey Mantle in LF just because he played there once, I had to decide between he and Joe D for CF.

So with those caveats in mind, who would make the cut and just where would they bat?  Let's start with the leadoff hitter.
