    Default Mariano Rivera is done

    Tore his ACL. At 42 years old, I think that's it.

    Too bad he had to finish this way. Total stud.

    I know players shag fly balls all the time during BP, but still you think Yankees brass would tell him it's not the best idea.

    It is a shame to go out like this if this truly is the end. This guy was nails for a long, long time.

    At least they have a really well conditioned trainer on staff.

    That YES Network is some operation. Two different camera angles of a guy fielding a ball in BP. And a third one that follows the coach running out there.
    Look the Blues played well, but I'm not going to fall over myself about how "Elliott saved the point" because he made 17 fucking saves. He earned his salary. So did everyone else. They got a point in game 3. 79 more to go. It's called being a professional. -ppg

    Shame. Dude's a machine. I wouldn't be shocked if he tries to give it a go again next year.

    He'll be back.
    Of course you do.

    Stolen from a friend

    If George Steinbrenner were still alive, he'd have Rivera put down like a lame colt and tell all the other players that Mo went to a farm upstate where he could hang out with other relief pitchers, shagging fly balls and throwing cut fastballs all day.
