Hey guys. Ithought this definitely deserved its own thread.

When Mariano Rivera entered into Tuesday night's game[/URL], a new record was set, not only for the MLB, but also for the three other major sports, the NBA, NHL and NFL.

The record? Rivera, Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada have now played together for 16 consecutive seasons. That has never been done before. Before this season, the three tied with Jim Gantner, Paul Monitor and Robin Yount, who played for the Brewers for 15 straight seasons.

That's pretty amazing! Considering this era of sports where players bounce around from team to team. I just can't believe no one else has done it. This is also a testament to their hardwork. Man, 1996 feels like yesterday.

Butthurt Red Sox fans make me sooooo happy. I bet it really sucks having to put up with the Yankees' success when you hate them.

Joe West announced that Jeter, Rivera and Posada have played together for too long and that this milestone is "an embarrassment to baseball."

an impressive stat and testimony to the fact that the front office knew to keep these guys, and didn't let anything get in their way.

treat your players right, and you dont have to "make ammends" like the Sox are now doing with some of their stars from the late 90's early 2000's.

Btw, DaPip, add an "m" to your user title and that avatar becomes a whole lot of disturbing

In all fairness, we had to make amends with Bernie Williams, and still have to with Torre.

And of course, Berra's a whole sepatate issue.

But sometimes you just have to let your stars go when they're too old. We had to do it with Bernie, and we're likely going to have to do that with Posada. And the Sox were absolutely right to let Nomar go - they made out on that one.

Berra's issue stemed from before the current leadership was running the team. I know Steinbrenner was the "Boss" but we also know that the front office has had more power in the last 20 years than it had the 20 before that. It didn't hurt that George was suspended...

As for Torre.. let's just say that I dont consider him one of the "stars".

LOL LOL

BTW here an interesting comparison:

Yankee longevity records:

Derek Jeter, Marioano Rivera, & Jorge Posada. 16 seasons: 1995 to 2010. 5 World Championships

Bill Dickey, Lefty Gomez & Red Ruffing. 13 seasons: 1930-1942. 6 World Championships

Whitey Ford, Elston Howard & Mickey Mantle. 13 seasons: 1955-1967. 4 World Championships

It's a shame Pettitte wasn't around the whole time.

Yeah, but in the end it was he who decided on a better contract and being closer to home.

I thought this was interesting, but not surprising.

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/13/sports/baseball/13yankees.html?th&emc=th


Before he takes the mound to pitch the Yankees (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/news/sports/baseball/majorleague/newyorkyankees/index.html?inline=nyt-org) home opener against the Los Angeles Angels (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/news/sports/baseball/majorleague/losangelesangels/index.html?inline=nyt-org) on Tuesday, Andy Pettitte (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/p/andy_pettitte/index.html?inline=nyt-per) will be handed a World Series championship ring, his fifth. He will feel the joy of achievement that comes with ceremonial ritual. He will take a moment to admire the jewelry. Then the ring will go back in the box on its way to enshrinement at his family home in Houston.

A few years ago, I built a little display case in my den for the rings, Pettitte said. Ive never actually worn them.

The four Yankees who can now fill a hand Pettitte, Derek Jeter (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/j/derek_jeter/index.html?inline=nyt-per), Mariano Rivera (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/r/mariano_rivera/index.html?inline=nyt-per) and Jorge Posada (http://topics.nytimes.com/top/reference/timestopics/people/p/jorge_posada/index.html?inline=nyt-per) apparently fancy themselves as collectors, not the Bronx Bombers of bling. Noting that World Series rings tend to be the S.U.V.s of handwear, bloated and blinding, Pettitte said, Im not the type who wants to attract attention.

Ditto Rivera. I dont need to wear them, he said. I dont need to bring that attention. Theyre all in a safe place not at home, in case you were wondering.

The Fab Four: :D

When you consider the larger number of teams that are in MLB now compared with the other dynasties, not to mention more rounds of playoffs, you've got to say that this might be the most dominant group of 'career' Yankees when adjusting for era. If not in sheer performance, then of presence.

Be seeing you,

Joe West is an embarrassment to baseball...along with quite a few of his collegues.
