Mariano Rivera


Recommended Posts

Likely done for the season...



Yankees manager Joe Girardi announced following Thursday's game that Mariano Rivera was diagnosed with a torn ACL in his right knee.

Absolutely crushing news. Rivera is scheduled to head back to New York to meet with Yankees' doctors, but his season is almost certainly over and there's at least a chance that he has thrown his final pitch. It's terrible news for the Yankees, as there will never be another closer like Rivera, but David Robertson and Rafael Soriano are capable replacements. We would give the edge to Robertson, but both should be stashed away in most fantasy leagues.

I have no real ties to Mo except him Playing in Greensboro back in the day. I appreciate the way he plays and is one of the few yankees I can support.


I'm am no means a sentimental or emotional guy, but just watching Mo speak on it was emotional. I hate it for the guy.

I know I laughed - not necessarily because Mo got hurt, but reading NYYFans.com. I'm going to be listening to WFAN all day today.


For the record that's:


Pineda - year over

Joba - year, possibly more over

Mo - year, possibly career over
