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:
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.
