    Bones was something, wasn’t he?

    It’s interesting how many of the guys on this list played for the Yankees at one time or another.

      I was just thinking the same thing. I guess it tells you what an undercurrent of the Steinbrenner Doctrine was: buy power hitters whenever possible.

      Bye Bye Balboni! Wasn’t he thought to be a competitor to Thurman when they were coming up?

      Not Thurman, but Mattingly. The organization gave Balboni every opportunity to fail. Had they been able to land Jason Thompson, chances are you’d never would’ve seen Don Mattingly in a Yankees uniform.

      Oh that’s right…Mattingly.

      Thanks
