A Yankee Killer is a Major League Baseball player, typically a pitcher, who has a reputation for being able to defeat the New York Yankees on a regular basis. The term dates back at least to Johnny Podres, the famed Brooklyn Dodgers pitcher who in 1955 led the team to its first World Series Championship against the seemingly invincible New York Yankees. Another early Yankee Killer was Frank Lary, of the Detroit Tigers, Milwaukee Brewers, and Chicago White Sox, who maintained an impressive 28-13 (.683) record against the Yankees. The most famous Yankee Killer in recent years has been Baltimore Orioles Outfielder Luke Scott. Chuck Finley was considered another recent Yankee killer, who had such a reputation of being able to defeat the team, the Yankees almost pulled the trigger on a one for one trade with Andy Pettitte, who won four championships during his tenure with the team.
