Big game as in blowing game seven of a world series or big game like blowing game four of the alcs, leading to the biggest collapse in baseball playoff history? I can't decide either.
Give me Nathan and Papelbon.
Nobody's flawless, Einstein. Obviously you have the right to hate the Yankees and wish for Rivera to be mediocre but get real. The infamous "blown save" in game 7 was a series of bouncers, bloopers and errors and I think 1 hard hit ball, which you would have seen if you actually watched the game objectively. Let's assume it was a legitimate blown save and he got hit hard. His numbers still speak loudly as to what kind of pitcher and competitor he is. Name someone better.
Critisizing him for not beiing 100% is like saying Ted Williams sucked because he made out more than 65% of his carrer. You do know who Ted Williams was, don't you?
