    I certainly have wonder about this for a while. The Yankees have gone to the World Series 7 times since 1996. Of those Bernie was part of 4 Championships. ’96,’98,’99 and 2000. He was a Yankee for 16 years and played for no other team: a rare happening in today’s follow the money trail (what do you know, ask Cano).His last year was in 2006 and he was, as Joe Torre noted in his book “The Yankee Years,” good for another season. He was unceremoniously let go, but if there is such a thing as adding insult to injury, then the fact he is not considered a core player to make it The Core 5, this is certainly just that.
