    April 27: Sports Illustrated Issue comes out with Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte, Mariano Rivera, and Jorge Posada on the cover.

    May 3: Jorge Posada leaves game with sore calf.  He has yet to return as a starter.

    May 3: Mariano Rivera has “tightness” in his left side.  Though he has been deemed “available,” he has yet to be used.

    May 5: Andy Pettitte leaves game in the 5th inning with mild inflammation in his pitching elbow.

    Derek Jeter, you better watch your back.

      I hope the cover jinx only captured those three engaged in hijinx on the cover. Maybe being an aloof SOB is what saves Jeter this time around?

      They should’ve shot it like the famous Robert Freeman photo for of the Beatles used on the cover of the EMI album With the Beatles, and again on the American release Meet the Beatles!

      With Caps on, the interlocking NY half in shadow.

      OK, maybe not.

      @ Evan3457:
      At the rate the SI jinx is taking hold, they may as well have shot it like Abbey Road, with the priest, the mourner, the deceased and the gravedigger…
