The Yankees' 2009 season was more like a season divided in two. The first ended in May and was all about wind tunnels and boli and Chien-Ming Wang's utter inability to get anyone out.

There are plenty to choose from, meaning a few just missed our top ten. For example, Nick Swisher's inning on the mound (which solidified his spot as a fan favorite), or Mariano Rivera's 500th career save (which was perhaps more memorable for the bases-loaded walk he drew off Francisco Rodriguez in the top half of the inning). Click ahead for the ten moments that made the cut.
