What's that? Oh....yeah.....probably second place.
No offense but that was one of the dumbest statements I've seen on this site, or anywhere else for that matter. The gold glover with "mediocre defense" is batting .346 with 59 RBI and 64 runs scored. Add 20 stolen bases and what do you get? A great player.
You probably can't stand the Yankees and that's ok, but learn about about the game before making ludicrous comments like that. To answer your question, they'd probably be in 3rd without the future Hall of Famer
