3. Joe Gordon (1938-1946)
A hall-of-famer and one of the better second baseman the game of baseball has seen, Joe Gordon got the job done. He was burst upon the scene with the Yankees, blasting 153 homers and driving in 617 runs over seven seasons with the team.
He made six all-star teams in his seven years in the Bronx, won four world championships, and ranked in the MVP voting every year but his last.
One of the years he ranked in the MVP voting was 1942 when he took home the award. He jacked 18 homers, drove in 103 runs, and slashed .322/.409/.491 in his best all-around season of his career.
Joe Gordon not only went down as an outstanding player for the New York Yankees; he went down as an all-time great.
