We first posted our Top 50 Yankees on Wednesday. I'm just getting a chance to post my personal ballot. I spent a lot of time studying, talking to people, including my biggest help, my father, a lifelong Yankee fan.

The biggest difference between my ballot and the overall ballot is where Don Mattingly is ranked. I had him at No. 19. Every guy I have ahead of him either won more, won more MVPs or is in the Hall of Fame.

1. Babe Ruth
2. Lou Gehrig
3. Joe DiMaggio
4. Mickey Mantle
5. Yogi Berra
6. Whitey Ford
7. Derek Jeter

10. Red Ruffing
11. Alex Rodriguez
