The last six seasons, Mo Rivera has been a lock for pitching in 64 to 74 games and providing 70 to 78 innings pitched. Further, in five of those six seasons, his ERA was under two. While Rivera will be 39 in 2009, he’s showing no signs of slowing down. Once again, he will close games for the Yankees.
And, once again, he should be the rubber-stamp of perfection.
Oh, my stars and garters, how he will be missed when he’s gone.
