Thread: The Greats

  1. #1
    Who do you consider the 5 greatest Yankees of all-time? Here's my picks:
  2. Babe Ruth
  3. Joe Dimmagio
  4. Mickey Mantle
  5. Whitey Ford
  6. Lou Gehrig

    I'm interested to hear your replies.

    I agree except for Ford. I've always had a little more respect for Yogi as a player and person. I have to say that I don't know that much about Ford either.

    Well, it's off to the record books!

    Agreed, that Whitey one could go many ways. The other four are right on target, though.

    My vote would go with #15 instead of Whitey. Yogi's not a bad option either. Then again, we can't forget Donnie B.

    Aw heck, make it a list of 10!

    Very tough question. Let's see;

    1 Babe Ruth
    2 Lou Gehrig
    3 Joe Dimaggio
    4 Mickey Mantle
    5 Casey Stengal (can't forget the managers)

    Best. Go Yanks!

    It seems that we're all agreed on the top 4, but that last one is a toss up. Seahorse brought up a good point, though. If you're going to count Stengel, why not Joe McCarthy or Miller Huggins?

    Although Yogi could fit into the "great manager" calssification too...
