• ’09 Yanks 10th Best Yanks Champs Ever?

    Posted by on November 6th, 2009 · Comments (5)

    David Schoenfield thinks that the 2009 Yankees were the 10th best Yankees champoinship team ever. And, Dayn Perry agrees with that slotting.

    Where would you place the 2009 Yankees, all-time, compared to all other Bronx Bomber ring teams?

      Well, seeing as I was too young for anything before ’96, I’d have to root the recent championship teams as follows:

      1) 1998
      2) 1996
      3) 2009
      4) 1999
      5) 2000

      Could probably swap 4 & 5 if I had to…

      @ Pete:

      Did I say “root”, I meant ‘rate’. D’oh.

      I never saw any of the other teams so I can’t really rate. But, based on their methodology, I suppose I’d have to agree.

      I wouldn’t attempt to rate the ’09 edition until the ink is dry, so to speak. What I would like to know is how the Yankee infield this season (Teixeira-Cano-Jeter-Rodriguez) rates in terms of Win Shares, RSAA, OPS+, VORP, or what have you, against the infields of other champions. Just how good was “The $80,000,000 Infield?”

      Oh, as an addendum here’s a link that might be of interest with the above.


      I’m from the Rochester NY area as well.
