Steve Lombardi has a very interesting post up, and I thought it would be fun to piggyback off it. He lists an entire roster of his favorite non-star Yankees, with most of the players being from before the 1994 season. The players can be former stars who no longer profiled as great players, or guys who were role players for their entire careers. Being that I only became a fan in 1992, my list will be wildly different from Steve’s. Chime in with your own lists in the comments:
C: Jim Leyritz, Frankie Cervelli
1B: Tino Martinez, second stint
2B: Mariano Duncan
SS: Erick Almonte
3B: Robin Ventura
DH: Chili Davis
MI: Jose Vizcaino
OF: Shane Spencer, Nick Swisher, David Justice, Shelley Duncan, Darryl Strawberry
UT: Luis Sojo
Pitchers: Melido Perez, Jon Lieber, Aaron Small, Shawn Chacon, Ramiro Mendoza, Scott Proctor, Graeme Lloyd, Doc Gooden, Tanyon Sturtze
