With the 2010 Major League Baseball season more than halfway over and the most boring sports day of the year upon us, I figured I’d hand out a midterm report card to the New York Yankees.

Some were heroes, some were just okay, and some were role players that were necessary to win a championship. We’ll review what those seven have been up to since they left the Bombers to play elsewhere. Also, we’ll guess where they’d fit in if they came back to play for the Yankees in 2010.
