    I should clarify - IBB really didn't exist until the 1940's.

    I'm not sure if clarification is necessary ... but I'm asking which hitter drew the most IBB over the course of his career (as opposed to a pitcher issuing the most IBB).

    Let's see who can name the 7 relief pitchers since 1997 - not named Mariano Rivera - to record at least 5 saves for the Yankees.

    Is Mendoza one?

    Steve Karsay, Mike Stanton and Mendoza for certain. Nelson I would assume.

    Kyle Farnsworth-less. And the last one is the toughest to remember. Juan Acevedo (2003).

    If it's my turn now, I will ask: How many members of the 1986 Mets played for the Yankees at one time in their careers? (this does not include one other member of the 86 Mets who was Yankee property at one time but never played for them).

    I thought I remembered Jesse Orosco being a Yankee for a few weeks at the end of his career. Lee Mazzilli is another one.

    Rafael Santana?
    Lets Go Yankees, Valley Cats, Dutchmen, UT Spartans and ECU Pirates.

    Yep. Make that two I short-counted by. The last one I've been thinking of had the briefest Yankee career of them all (this will teach me to count before I ask another question again!)

    Stan Jefferson...

  18. #38
    Jefferson wasn't on the post-season roster for the 86 Mets. The last one I'm thinking of, was (as were all the others previously named).

    That's it! And the one who was Yankee property without playing for them was relief pitcher Randy Niemann.
