The NY Post Listed Their Top 10 Yankees… Here Are My Top 10, Who Are Yours?

Here is a fun exercise for a Sunday afternoon. The New York Post asked its baseball writers to list the Top-Ten Yankees of all time.

I decided to follow their lead and list mine as well. They are listed below. I created my list before looking carefully at the lists in the Post, although I would guess the lists are very similar.

Please add your list to the comments!

And here are my Top-10 Yankees:

Babe Ruth

Lou Gehrig

Mickey Mantle

Joe DiMaggio

Yogi Berra

Derek Jeter

Mariano Rivera

Whitey Ford

Bernie Williams

Bill Dickey

And, just for fun, here’s a few more lists:

The “I wish I could have added them” list:

Ron Guidry

Don Mattingly

Graig Nettles

The “He Probably Belongs in the Top-10” list:

Alex Rodriguez

The “We Forget How Good He Really Was” List:

Willie Randolph

Roy White

George Selkirk

Wally Pipp

Charlie Keller

The “He’s Probably the Third Best Yankees Pitcher of All-Time” List:

Andy Pettitte

The “If It Isn’t Andy Pettitte, This is the Third Best Yankees Pitcher Ever (Guidry Was Listed Above)” List:

Red Ruffing

Lefty Gomez

Mel Stottlemyre

Bob Shawkey

Waite Hoyt

The “He Was An Excellent Pitcher Who Many People Never Heard of” List:

Hank Borowy

Russ Ford

Spud Chandler

The “He Is Third on the Yankees All-Time WHIP” List

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

"Scattering The Ashes has all the feels. Paul Russell Semendinger's debut novel taps into every emotion. You'll laugh. You'll cry. You'll reexamine those relationships that give your life meaning." — Don Burke, writer at The New York Post

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
