You must be kidding. Cal Ripken ahead of Carl Yastrzemski at No. 8? Ripken's consecutive game streak is a great testament to his will, passion and commitment, but not to his talent. Yaz had arguably the greatest single season in the history of the game in 1967.
-Voice of Reason

Check Yog's stats vs Ripken's. No doubt Yogi is the No. 8, not to mention Bill Dickey over Ripken.
