Has there been a better closer this decade? could there be a better role model in baseball?
In an age of arrogance, over indulged and sometimes over paid athletes, you most agree, it is a joy to watch this man do his job.
I have never been a New York Yankee's fan, but tonight's game was a must see, I wanted to be able to say, I watched the greatest closer ever get his 500 th. win.
There was also an added gift for him tonight, he got his first RBI, he walked with bases loaded, and here is the best part, it was against K-Rod.
So congrats Sr. Rivera, when you come in the game, folks can safely sing "turn out the lights the party is over", in most nights you can take that to the bank.
Muchas gracias Sr. Mariano Rivera, muchas gracias.
