Well, my version of an All-Time Yankees squad looks like this:
C- Yogi Berra
1B- Lou Gehrig
2B- Robinson Cano
3B- Alex Rodriguez
SS- Derek Jeter
LF- Joe Dimaggio
CF- Mickey Mantle
RF- Reggie Jackson
DH- Babe Ruth
1- Derek Jeter
2- Mickey Mantle
3- Lou Gehrig
4- Babe Ruth
5- Joe Dimaggio
6- Alex Rodriguez
7- Robinson Cano
8- Reggie Jackson
9- Yogi Berra
SP- Whitey Ford
SP- Roger Clemens
SP- Red Ruffing
SP- Lefty Gomez
SP- Andy Pettite
RP- Ron Guidry
RP- Dave Righetti
CP- Mariano Rivera
-Follow my format as far as positions, number of pitchers, etc.
-No bench players. Too much to argue.
-Use only players who played at least 5 years of their career with New York.
-Keep players in positions they played primarily, or at the very least, frequently.
-List players in an actual lineup of your choosing.
-Argue players' entire careers; not just the New York years.
-If you argue another closer besides Rivera, you lose by default. I'll expect a forfeit. (JK)
I hope this is as fun as I anticipate, and let's keep it civil, please. Good luck.

Not much of a Yankee fan, but what the hell.
I will change out 1 OF position, 1 infielder, 1 starter & 1 reliever. So here goes.
In the OF I am moving Joe D. to RF, and inserting Rickey Henderson in LF. (so in essence I am arguing Henderson over Reggie.
In the infield, out comes Cano.....replaced by Joe Gordon.
Starting pitcher getting the yank is Pettitte. Replaced by Ron Guidry.
Reliever that came up short is Righetti.....bring in "The Goose" Rich Gossage.
