    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.

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

    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.
