I'm curious who all the greats were. I've heard of Gehrig, Berra, Mantle, Mattingly and many others. Who are some of the greatest who've come up through the farm and hopefully, played their entire careers proudly wearing the Yankee uniform?

(Although I don't know how I'm going to let you get away with forgetting about Andy...I mean, Jorge is one thing, and Mo is less forgiveable than that, but Andy?! &po'd& &po'd& :lol: ;))

Again, my reasoning might be faulty...

Unless, of course, the question is which Yankees came up to the majors as Yankees and stayed that way throughout their major league careers.

-#1YankeeLover That would be the ideal question. Al Leiter isn't great but he came up from the farm, I think. I figure the list would be reduced if they'd played elsewhere after their great Yankee years.

-#1YankeeLover Has someone forgotten about Doza and Spencer from the current farm crop? It's harvest time and the crops are blooming nicely!!!

No, I meant, is the question if they came up from the Yankees' minor league teams and stayed Yankees their major league entire careers; or is it asking if they were Yankees throughout their minor league careers in addition to their major league careers?

If this is supposed to be about players who stayed with the Yankees their entires careers, then not all on Nome's list is accurate. Can we get a clarification as to what we are looking for?

Nome's list is great!.....How about adding Red Rolfe, Roy White, Gil McDougald, and Bobby Richardson. Don't forget the honorary Yankee of all time, Bob Shepard!:lol: :lol: :NY: :NY: :NY: :NY:

You are right #1 Yankeelover !!!!

If I am not mistaken the SF Seals were unaffiliated with a ML team so when the Yankees bought him , the Yankees were his first ML affiliation. Nit picking point.

While we are trying to define the rules, off the top of my head add;
Johnnie Murphy,
Lefty Gomez
Tony Kubek and
Tommy Henrich (Tommy was signed by the Indians but the contract was ruled invalid by Commish Landis and he was declared a free agent and signed by the Yanks and played his entire career here)

A lot of these players were traded to the Yankees when they were in the farm system. Like how we got Soriano. But which ones were DRAFTED by the Yankees? Jeter was and I think Andy Pettitte was too.

Scooter, are you talking about the current Yankee team or are you also including all past teams/players. If so you are limiting the results by using the term "drafted". There was not a draft until relatively recently. I think it came into being sometime in the 60's. Before the teams could sign whoever they wanted and who agreed with the terms.

Nome, I get the feeling that Skoot's talking about trades, whereby an MLB player is traded for another and 2 minor league prospects. If these minor league players are then brought up by the MLB Yankees, that seems what he was referring to.

I personally don't hold standards so strict that a player must have their entire minor league and/or MLB career with the Yankees. If so, there'd be lots of names removed from anyone's list, including Ruth's.

That is exactly what I was referring to.

Skoot, sorry for the late reply, but at least I got you pegged correctly.
