    Greatest/Favorite Yankees Tournament

    Posted by on March 21st, 2010 · Comments (23)

    Last week, I suggested having a Greatest/Favorite Yankees Tournament. And, thanks to the Complete Baseball Encyclopedia, I believe that I’ve worked up some brackets that will make this interesting. Here they are, below – click on the image to enlarge it:

    The tournament will start in about a week – and each match-up will be determined by a poll posted here. Pick who you think is best. Pick your favorite. Use whatever scale you want to use – but, make a vote…and let’s have some fun with this one.

    I’ve also created a downloadable spreadsheet that you may find helpful with this one – as it allows you to make your picks on a “Guide” and see how they look, and determine your vote, when the next poll/round is available.

    Any questions? Please share them now before we start the polling process.

    Yankees Madness

    I’m thinking of doing a “March Madness” rip-off…having a tournament of the 64 greatest Yankees players of all-time…where readers can vote on head-to-head match-ups to pick their favorite Yankee of all-time. But, before I do the work on that, I thought I would check on interest first.

    Would you like to see something like that here? Related, if you have any ideas or suggestions on such a project, please feel free to share them as well.
