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

    Stanton, Mendoza, Karsay, Nelson, and Gordon are correct.

    2 more to go...

    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.

    Oops, that's correct but I short-counted by one! Still one more to go.

    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...

  13. #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.

    How about this? Two former Yankees have been caught stealing twice in one inning although neither one was playing with the Yanks at the time. Who are they?

    I'll guess Rickey Henderson and Alfonso Soriano.

    Here's one I ran across recently. Who was the first Venezuelan to play for the Yankees?

    One of them was traded by the Yankees to a National League team in the early 90's and the other one hit over 300 lifetime HR's and won an MVP before he became a member of the Yankees.

    A-Rod sounds right...and how about Roberto Kelly?

    Roberto Kelly is one...still one to go. In fact, the other guy was the first player ever to do this, I believe.
