Without his choice being validated by anyone outside himself Yahoo Sports Writer Phil Watson has taken on an awesome task.
Picking the top 8 best Yankee players of all time.
He’s included players based on the percentage of Hall of Fame votes each received and the 3 who weren’t voted into the Hall of Fame he used the number of games they played with the Yankees.
In descending order Babe Ruth comes out the winner followed by, Joe Di Maggio, Mickey Mantle, Yogi Berra, Bill Dickey, Derek Jeter, Lou Gehrig and Mariano Rivera
Watson uses an analysis of their baseball stats and how they played in matching up various players on the list who need to be compared to decide the final order.
Of course he has missed out on the heart factor. All these players are beloved but anyones personal list will depend so much on who they look up to the most as well as their stats. COMMENT on whether you think he’s got it right.
