DateQuestionAnswer
2010-02-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)After DiMaggio and Mantle (or Mantle and DiMaggio), who do you think was the THIRD best centerfielder in Yankee history? My vote would go to the truncated CF career of Bobby Murcer, though I'm sure some younger fans might insist on listing Bernie Williams as the final member of the trinity. Having witnessed both careers in their entirety, I think Murcer was foced to do some heavy lifting as THE MAN for some offensively challenged teams, while Bernie benefitted greatly from surrounding talent. Would Meusel or Damon be in the discussion? If the Yanks hadn't whimped out on signing Beltran when they had the chance, the answer might have been differnt!
(BrettG from Leftfield)
No respect for Earle Combs... Not that Earle is the right answer, it was just fun saying that. Without stopping the chat to carefully research my answer, my gut feeling is that Bernie has to be the third. Murcer is definitely in the picture, especially because his 1971 and 1972 seasons, when viewed in context are just AMAZING, huge, huge seasons. Our translated stats have them at .370/.456/.624 and .334/.400/.671. No one noticed. Unfortunately, Murcer just couldn't maintain that level of production, in part because the Yankees had to move over to Shea Stadium. (Steven Goldman)
