I Lied Yesterday

I told everybody to check back last night for the unveiling of the first AP Top 25 Yankee Playoff Roster Poll and then didn't post it.  Sorry, had a beer too many at trivia and the bed was calling when I got home.  But to make up for it, I did the research, counted up all the votes, and now, a day late, here is the first poll:
