      I don’t recall what exact game but I do remember watching Mo’ give Vizcaino some pointers before the game. I hope The Viz can keep it up.

      It seems as if Torre is falling in love with Vizcaino, just like he did in April.

      ynks4life – here’s the story:


      Struggling through his first few months with the Yankees, Luis Vizcaino needed a shoulder to lean on. Mariano Rivera offered.

      Now, with Vizcaino plugging away as one of the club’s more reliable relievers, Rivera’s gesture is paying dividends.

      Torre recalled having a casual conversation with Rivera in the visitors’ clubhouse at Colorado’s Coors Field in June, discussing the continuing tutelage of Vizcaino. The consensus was that the 32-year-old should be brought along slowly and with a soft touch.
