Just checking now, I realized that “Mike” Mussina is probably the greatest “Mike” in Yankees history. See the list:
And, we know that “Derek” Jeter is the greatest “Derek” in Yankees history. Ditto the guys flanking him – “Alex” Rodriguez and “Robinson” Cano. Also, in the “Jason” department, it’s Giambi, Grimsley and Anderson – so, Giambi wins. And, “Jorge” Posada is the only “Jorge” in Yankees history.
Do we even need to discuss “Hideki”?
There’s been a lot of “Johnny’s” to wear the pinstripes:
So, Damon has a way to go.
I was suprised at how few “Gary’s” there were:
Sheffield is the best ever here. And, “Bernie” Williams only has “Bernie” Allen in his way. Also, “Mariano” Rivera only has “Mariano” Duncan.
What about “Randy” Johnson? You tell me:
I could go on for a while with this – but, I think the point is made. This Yankees group is the “best” ever in terms of their relative first names (as a whole). That’s kind of interesting, at least to me.
