As we wait for the Yankees to make the final decision on their ALDS roster, I found myself thinking back to some of the players who made cameos for the Yankees during the 2009 season.
Here’s the list of all players who played in at least one game this year. In all, the Yankees used 45 different players to get them through 162 games. Remember when the bullpen featured Jose Veras and Edwar Ramirez? Remember when Cody Ransom was the answer at third base while Alex Rodriguez rehabbed? Remember the Angel Berroa jokes?
It’s amazing to think of all the people it took to get the Yankees to this point in the season. Sometimes the little pieces in the puzzle can be nearly as important as the big ones.
