Waiting For Mo

In the Times, Ben Shpigel writes about Mariano Rivera, who has not pitched in nine games:

Manager Joe Girardi saw no need to insert him into any of the three blowouts in Boston over the weekend, and the Yankees never led in their 5-4 loss Monday.

“I wouldn’t imagine we’d go much longer, but these weather conditions aren’t the most conducive to a guy that had a little irritation in his oblique,” Girardi said. “I don’t consider that to be a problem, but if he’s coming in just to get some work and it’s going to be 42 degrees, I’m not sure I want to do that.”
