Did you just say "upgrade"? from rivera to rincon? wow, Rivera gets so little respect this year. :-[



Mo will be another year older....the change has to come sometime, right?

thanks


I can't help but think that you're just trying to bash Rivera, secretly.


There's no reason to think Mariano Rivera is not going to be their closer. You know who gets at Mo? The Red Sox. Why? Because when you face a team that much, every year, for so many years, they start to get ahold of you. Rincon isn't even on Rivera's radar, and you're a bit lost upstairs if you think so. :-t

The Yankees face the entire AL East as much as the Sox... excluding playoffs, but those are whole different games, so you're argument is unfounded. ;-)

look at his game log, he's been fine recently, and he's got 9 saves. isn't that tied for the ML lead or something?

He has 3 saves, learn how to read. He's pitched in 9 games. Doesn't look too great now does he??

And the ML lead is 11, tied between Mesa and Lyon, so wow, your post was pretty much just useless. ;-D

I think he was talking about Kolb having nine saves and hoping the Yankees would get him from the Braves so he doesn't have to watch him anymore. Nine is pretty close to eleven, so it looks like your post was pretty useless.

He was obviously talking about Kolb...

JustinA seems awfully immature, and as of right now, certainly looks pretty silly.

This is really a very legitimate question (although for 2007 or 2008 imo). Mo has been a huge reason for the Yanks' success over near the last decade, but once he's gone, the Yanks will have the biggest hole to fill in recent memory. I really have no idea what they're going to do and it's certainly a big concern for the future.

No, no it's not. The rest of the AL East has been utter crap and a revolving door. Who in the past 5 years has been a team that can even approach the Yankees besides the Sox in the East? No one. Excluding playoffs? How can you exclude playoffs in an arguement like this? That's where they see him the most. During the regular season he won't close every Yanks/Sox matchup, but in the playoffs? Mo rings them all up if possible, in a 7 game set that goes 7 games? They probably see him 4-5 times, sometimes a few days in a row. That's how they dial up Mariano... You can't exclude the playoffs, and with them, the Yankees see the Sox more than any other team in the AL East.

Oh, and *your
