• Smartest Yankee?

    Who was the smartest Yankees player ever?  I don’t mean in terms of baseball smarts.  More so, I mean in terms of general intelligence?

    Reggie Jackson?  Mike Mussina?  Joe Girardi?  Bobby Brown?  Doc Medich?  Jim Beattie?  Someone else?

    You tell me.

      Ross Ohlendorf?
      “Ohlendorf completed his degree at Princeton in 2006.

      He received the George Mueller Award from the university for combining “high scholarly achievement in the study of engineering with quality performance in intercollegiate athletics”. In his senior thesis, Ohlendorf used sabermetrics to demonstrate the return on investment from the Major League Baseball Draft.”

      Well, Mike Mussina would answer that he’s the smartest. No contest.

      Roger Clemens negotiated a pro-rated $24 million/year contract to pitch at the front of Cashman’s 2007 “division championship-caliber” rotation for two months.
