Joe Gordon

Joe Gordon has been elected to the Hall of Fame, probably the best second baseman in Yankees history. Its about time this guy got in.

That came out of left-field, didn't it?

Joe Gordon was good but Tony Lazzeri was at least as good and was with the yankess longer. Lazzeri is the yankees best second baseman.

Everyone always over looks him cause he played with Ruth, Gehrig & DiMaggio.

Judging by the numbers, Gordon was a better hitter. Not by a lot, but Gordon was better. He also has a MUCH better reputation as a hitter. Also, Gordon missed two prime years to the army.
