Compare lineup to 1966:

CF: Mantle over Ellsbury
LF: White over Gardner
RF: Maris over Beltran
3B: Headley over Boyer
SS: Clarke over Didi (in hitting)
2B: Richardson over Drew
1B: Pepitone over Teixeria
C: Howard over McCann

Conclusion: The 2015 team has only one guy in its lineup who hits better than the last place 1966 Yankees.
