A meal between friends

While the Yankees were in California, Tom Verducci of Sports Illustrated got Derek Jeter, Andy Pettitte, Mariano Rivera and Jorge Posada together for lunch. Turns out, it was the first time those four had eaten together when they weren’t part of a larger group.

The result was this week’s Sports Illustrated cover story, a recorded conversation between the four longtime teammates.

The link above is for an online bonus section not in the magazine, but SI did pass along some excerpts from the magazine piece, including this one.

Jeter: What it comes down to is that I never have to worry about these guys being ready to play.

Pettitte: It’s all about trust.

Jeter: I mean, it never crosses my mind. I don’t have to worry about them. I know they know how to win. I know that’s the only thing they care about. They don’t care about their personal stats.

Rivera: No egos. No jealousy.
