I heard recently they ran this poll regarding the top five Met shortstops. This made me think of the top five for the yanks.
This is what I came up with:
1. Jeter
2. Rizutto
3. Crosetti
4. Kubek
5. Dent

What do you think? the fourth and fifth ones were a challenge and I have a feeling will create a alittle bit of a controversy!:confused: :confused: :NY: :NY: :NY: :NY:

I'd switch one and two and four and five.

I think Jeter will be better than Scooter when all is said and done but I need to see more of his career before I put him up there, you never know what happens tomorrow

I'm not going to place Jeter in there yet...Not until he's done...

1. Rizutto
2. Crosetti
3. Koenig
4. Kubek
5. Peckinpaugh (The original Ironman)

I'm glad you agree with me Michaels07. I was sure you would come up with someone I hadn't thought of. I understand Ford's new book ranks his top yankees by position. I haven't seen it so I can't comment on it.:) :NY: :NY: :NY:

I did see Gil MacDougal play short,but only for 2 yrs. Stick Michael was a slick fielder but he needed a tennis racket to hit the ball. Tom Tresh played short for a year,but was better in the outfield.
No, i havent seen the Ford Book, guess i will take a look at BN.

Doh !!

Actually, my original answer had Everett Scott but he only played 3 full seasons with the Yankees. I just forgot to delete the paren comment and it stuck with Roger...

Michaels07..... I had the opportunity to meet Tom Tresh this past summer at an oldtimers dinner and found him to be a cordial, regular guy who was pleasant to talk to and be with. I introduced him to my son, who believe it or not, I named after. He got a kick out of that. I remember Tresh mostly as an outfielder who had knee problems that hurt his career. His father Mike, I believe, was a catcher in the majors for the Tigers or White Sox.:NY: :NY: :NY: :NY:
