So I was trying to think -- which can be dangerous -- and was thinking of Yankees on this World Series team to win titles with other teams. There are some, including Johnny Damon and Eric Hinske, both of whom won World Series titles with the Red Sox (Damon in 2003 and Hinske in 2007).
However, one name stands out when I think about guys on this team that have won a title elsewhere: AJ Burnett.
The pitcher that the Yankees spent $82.5 million on started two games in this World Series, going 1-1. Burnett's other World Series win? Well that would be with the 2003 Florida Marlins. And who did the Marlins play in the 2003 World Series? That's right, the Yankees.
I believe that makes AJ Burnett the only player on this Yankees roster to win a World Series with the Yankees, and one against the Yankees.
