Against Yankees: 182 games, .318 AVG,.403 OBP, .569 SLG, 38 HR, 132 RBIs, 113 runs
The Yankees have long searched for a solution to David Ortiz. For instance, in 2005 they signed relief pitcher Mike Myers to neutralize the slugger. In 15 at bats against Myers, Ortiz had five hits, six RBIs, and a home run. After Boston fell behind 3-0 in the 2004 ALCS, Big Papi homered in three of the next four games to lead the Red Sox to an unprecedented comeback and World Series berth. |(Credit: Getty Images)
