Paul O'Neill and Bernie Williams. Enough said. But, I do believe this is what The "New" Yankee Stadium is missing. I would not mind retiring Tino Martinez as well, but some people have argued with me, that he was not with the team long enough. I ask them about Reggie Jackson. We all know 2, and 42 will be there someday (well 42 is already, but im sure it will ceremoniously be ritired when Mo Rivera is done). This may be just what Yankee Stadium needs, the last Yankees champions numbers out in Monument Park. I have a feeling Yankees management is just waiting for Derek Jeter to be the 1st number retired at the New Stadium. Oh, and I forgot one last number that is a lock for monument park, once he's done.... #6.

2, 51, 21, 42, 24, 6......these will be the numbers i will be telling MY kids were Yankees greats (keep in mind im 23)

I don't even like the Yankee's but went to alot of Yankee games and I can't tell you how many times I seen Tino Martinez make a sick catch, a ridiculous throw, of just hit in the clutch.

Have to agree with you on this one. O'Neil and Williams were great players, but even better, they were great Yankees. I still miss seeing Bernie playing in center field, those were the good days. We haven't had a center fielder even come close to being as consistant and as good at the plate as he was since he retired. I also agree with you on Tino Martinez. I loved having him at first base, he was a rock. Jeter and Mo's numbers will surely be retired, those will be the next big ones. Only time will tell who else will get retired, but I think they're running out of numbers!

Definately Paul O'Neill and Bernie. They were the 2 that started the long journey out of the Dallas Greene/Stump Merill nightmare, into the greatness of the 90's and beyond.Thats what great about the Yankees, they reward excellence.
