Tom Verducci got the Core Four to sit down for lunch and answer a few questions. Here’s one of my fav’s from the session:
SI: You guys took a picture together after the last game at Yankee Stadium in 2008. Do you guys do that every year?
Posada: Yeah, it’s Andy’s idea.
Rivera: Yeah, and it’s great because you don’t know how long we’re going to be together.
Jeter: We’ve done it other years because we did it when Bernie [Williams, another homegrown Yankee who played for New York from 1991 through 2006] was there, too, right?
Posada: We’ve done it since ’03 because Andy’s been retiring since ’03.
Pettitte: I started it that year because I didn’t know what was going to happen. Just kind of uncertain about what the year was going to bring. Because I knew the Yankees knew that my elbow had been bothering me for a long time and I just never knew what was going to happen, so I wanted a shot of all us together in ’03. And we’ve been doing it ever since.
Maybe Michael, Livesey and Lukevics should insist on getting into that next photo session too?
