Mariano Rivera: Forever The Sandman


Today Mariano Rivera received a much deserved plaque in Monument Park at Yankee Stadium.  The plaque commemorates his status as an all time Yankee great.  What a pleasure it was to watch him pitch for 19 extremely succusful seasons as a Yankee.  One could argue that he was the best closer to ever pitch in baseball.  He was definitely the best closer that I have ever seen.  I do not believe that we will see a pitcher of his caliber again for a long time, if ever.
