    ^ 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.

    Ok, I agree....maybe wrong to add him to that but felt he was iconic enough as he is and was the face of Yankee baseball during his career...since 1996 we think of New York Yankee baseball you think of Derek Jeter first for most baseball fans...

    There are only 4 spots but I agree with you about Yogi. And Rivera gets on before Jeter does.
    THE GOAT

    Until a player reaches these PA numbers, lets not talk about how good they are.


    The Following PA's are when sample size stabilizes

    50 PA: Swing %
    100 PA: Contact Rate
    150 PA: Strikeout Rate, Line Drive Rate, Pitches/PA
    200 PA: Walk Rate, Groundball Rate, GB/FB
    250 PA: Flyball Rate
    300 PA: Home Run Rate, HR/FB
    500 PA: OBP, SLG, OPS, 1B Rate, Popup Rate
    550 PA: ISO

    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.

    Love this one. I remember the 5-4-3 DP back then could be Sanchez-Clarke-Blomberg

    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.

    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!
