The MVP of the 1998 World Series with the Yankees, Brosius didn't play anywhere near long enough to mount a full-scale Hall of Fame case, but he manned the hot corner during New York's run of four straight pennants ('98–2001) and three titles. Brosius came up with the A's, debuting in 1991 but not sticking until late '93 due to illness and injuries, then bounced around the diamond, playing primarily at third base. After a breakout 1996 season (.304/.393/.516 with a career-high 22 homers and WAR) that was nonetheless interrupted by a right wrist fracture, he endured a miserable follow-up campaign (.203/.259/.317, marred by a knee injury and some tinkering with his swing). The Yankees, who had just traded Charlie Hayes to the Giants and let Wade Boggs walk in free agency, had a vacancy at third and took Brosius as the player to be named later in a deal that sent Kenny Rogers to Oakland.
