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?
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.
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.
