Ouch, Another Yankee Record Soon To Fall
Here are the up-to-date career HBP leaders for the Yankees:
Rank- Player - HBP Total
1 Frankie Crosetti 114
2 Derek Jeter 110
3 Kid Elberfeld 81
4 Jason Giambi 74
5 Bert Daniels 70
6 Chuck Knoblauch 61
7 Don Baylor 60
8 Jorge Posada 52
Jeter just needs 5 more this season to become the all-time HBP king for the Yankees. There's no question that he's going to make it.

Wow. Giambi's already at #4. And this is, what, his 5th season.

Yeah. Jeter is no suprise to me because it seems like he gets hit all the time, but Giambi is a little more surprising.
