"I am the best in baseball."

"If I was playing in New York, they'd name a candy bar after me."

"The only difference between me and those other great Yankees is my skin color."

(All three quotes were said by one person)

Nope, Rickey got his due in a question posed by cwebb a while ago. Looking for a different Bronx Bomber here.

Although, come to think of it, the first quote probably passed Rickey's lips a few times...

Nope, although the candy bar is an important clue...

Aha! I've got it now. Knew I remembered that candy bar quote. It's another player who went from Oakland to New York (no, not Jason Giambi) - it's Reggie Jackson.

Bingo!

You know, somehow a Giambi candy just wouldn't be the same as a Reggie Bar... B-)
