Does this rank seem high?

Admittedly it did for us too when we put this together but there is a reason why the New York Yankees have held on to the contract of Brett Gardner for so long…he is sneaky good.

The longest-tenured Yankee as of this writing and the only active member of the team on this list, Brett Gardner has put up solid advanced metrics with excellent plate discipline and incredible speed.  Gardner has shown himself to be a “glue” guy of the team and for casual fans an unsung hero.  To date, Gardner has an All-Star appearance, a Gold Glove, and a Wilson Defensive Player Award, though the most important accolade he owns is his 2009 World Series Ring.

Yankees fans have known for years just how good he is!
