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.

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