^ That's one too many. I would agree with Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, and Mantle. Obviously, falling short of those four is no slight to Jeter, Bera, or Rivera. The Yankee Mount Rushmore is that exclusive.
Yogi is a 13x champ, shame on you guys for not including him.
when they forget what Kevin Long saids
I follow rules and appreciate the ignore button

I'm not neglecting Yogi. There are only four spots on Mount Rushmore. Again, it isn't an indictment to fall short of Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, and Mantle.
Wally Pipp, Horace Clark, Celerino Sanchez and Alvaro Espinoza.
This one is easy because as great as Yogi, Mo or Jeter were. 4 spots Ruth, Gehrig, Dimaggio and Mantle. This is the closest thing to a fact an opinion could possibly be.
Ruth, Dimaggio, Mantle, Jeter.
Here's one for Sauron...
Cashman, Newman, Oppenheimer, and Pineda
Derek Jeter is a lucky man.
All time I guess Ruth Mantle Gehrig Joe D.
My personal four from my lifetime, Jeter Mo Donny Andy
There is no way in hell Jeter is better than Gehrig, Ruth, DiMaggio or Mantle. His total numbers may be more than Gehrig and DiMaggio but that's only because Gehrig had an incurable disease and DiMaggio fought in WWII. No one in their right mind would take Jeter at his best over any of those 4 at their best, period!
Look at Jeter compared to Gehrig...you'd have to be beyond crazy to think Jeter comes close to being as good as Gehrig!
