Your $50 Yankees team

Last week, a $15 five-player NBA roster was created by @ballislife. Since that was created, numerous $15 rosters were created, and this has expanded into rock bands and other groups.

There has not been one done for baseball or football, due to the numbers of players on the field at the same time (9 and 11, respectively).

I am a die-hard New York Yankees fan who has followed the team most of my life. I will try and I will try to concoct a Yankees team that is the best team money can buy, with just $50. There will be nine players, one for every position, plus a relief pitcher and a manager. Therefore, you are picking eleven people. Choose wisely. There is no designated hitter.

$4- Thurman Munson
$3- Jorge Posada
$2- Bill Dickey
$1- Elston Howard
