Torn ACL for Yankees’ Rivera

leave a comment

A sentiment similar to my own from the town that loves to hate the Yankees.

Rivera is one of the best people in baseball and is nearing the end of a remarkable career, having hinted in spring training that he planned to retire. He deserves to go out throwing that cutter, not on the disabled list.

Here’s hoping we get to see to see him pitch again.

Imagining the Ninth Inning Without Mariano Rivera

leave a comment

If another team had beaten Rivera in the normal course of competition, even in October, it would not have hurt this way.

Not the way I wanted to see Rivera go. Wish he could have tipped his cap at the end of the season.

Hope he has at least one game left.
