Can you name all of the 2011 Yankees?

Someone emailed me this link, and apparently they found it from our friends over at River Ave. Blues. It’s a Sporcle quiz that asks a very simple question:

Can you name the players who played a game for the New York Yankees in 2011?

If you’ve never done anything with Sporcle, it’s incredibly simple. Basically, you have 10 minutes to type in the last name of every player who got into a game for the Yankees this season.

I’ll give you a hint: The guy in the picture above is one of them.

It took me less than two and a half minutes to get all but four names. Those last four were all relief pitchers, and three of them were lefties. Getting those last four took a while, but with 2:31 to go I typed in the last player I needed. It’s harder than you might think. You start out like a tornado of Yankees knowledge, then you hit an immovable wall. That was my experience anyway.

Good way to kill a few minutes on a Saturday afternoon in mid-November.
