It’s been almost nine years since he blew Game 7 of the Whirled Serious out in Arizona…It’s astonishing to consider how great Rivera has been since that loss.
He’s 40 now, and yeah, Mariano’s still pretty damn good.
why oh why was the infield in, Joe?
I loved the symmetry of the Series ending on November 4th last year, it just seemed right that it would be 8 years to the day.
OTP: I think Gardner should be hitting leadoff.
 Praise be to Mo.
 I like Gardner in the 9 spot, and I like Swish in the #2.
 Yeah, that looks good. But Girardi will bat the pitcher 9th, let's face it.
Mariano Rivera, ladies and gentlemen.
 Agree if you don't put Gardner at the top, the P should hit 8th ... and that its never gonna happen.
 He's the Man who needs no introduction.
 Beat me to it. If Jeter's at his normal depth, he makes that play. I flatter myself that I noticed it at the time and wanted him playing back, but honestly I can't remember.
