Yankees Shortstop BJ (Before Jeter)

With the news of Derek Jeter announcing 2014 will be his last year - I thought it would be good to remember just how unstable a position shortstop was for the Yankees before Jeter was brought up to the major leagues. Here's the cast of characters who preceded him at short in the Bronx.

- 1995 Tony Fernandez
- 1994 Mike Gallego
- 1993 Spike Owen
- 1992 Andy Stankiewicz
- 1991-1989 Alvaro Espinoza

Jeter is a classy guy and even as a Red Sox fan I root for him. I am of mixed emotions though about the potential of Jeter with 3316 hits needing just 103 to tie Carl Yastrzemski for 8th place on the all-time hits list.
