Top 10 Greatest Yankees All-Time

Yankee Stadium Monumnet ParkComing up with a list of 10 great players for some teams can be a challenge. It can be a struggle to find 10 truly great players. However, when attempting to list the top-10 greatest Yankees all-time the struggle is different. In New York it is about picking 10 from a list that could be twice that size. It comes down to what you value more. Do you value the game caller? Do you put greater interest in post-season success? Are you purely a numbers person? How you answer those questions will go a long way in shaping your top-10.

When crafting you top-10 greatest Yankees all-time list it can be compared to choosing between your Bentley and Rolls Royce. There is no wrong answer. As long as your criteria is valid and you can quantify your answers then you are good to go. To most historians the top-four include Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, and Mantle. I may or may not agree with that logic. That is the great thing about sports commentary, we can debate it. At the end of the day, if you have 10 of 16 players on your list it is all in the minutia.
