How the 2011 Yankees Opening Day Roster Was Built

Well.. They’re doing something right. I’m not sure how I feel about Posada as a DH but I’m sure it’s a good move nonetheless.

An off day already? I always hate how MLB insists to follow up Opening Day – and the long spring training lead up to it – with an anticlimatic day off. I’m dieing for another injection of baseball right now. However, I thought it would be interesting to take this time off and see how the Yankee 25-man roster was constructed. Here, in chronological order, are the 2011 New York Yankees ordered by the date when the Yankees originally acquired them.

6 players were acquired at the draft, 5 were international free agents, 7 were MLB free agents, 4 were traded to the Yankees, and 5 were signed on minor league deals this off season.

I always find things like this fascinating to look at. Who else didn’t realize that Alex Rodriguez has been on the team longer than anyone else but Jorge, Mo, and Jeter?
