If you are a Yankee fan and you didn’t shed tears tonight, you have no soul. Bravo to Joe Girardi for scripting a great farewell.
When Rivera came in during the 8th, I was positive he wouldn’t close the whole game, but I never expected the pitching change to be handled the way it was. Sending Pettitte and Jeter out there to get Mo was the absolute perfect move. And if you didn’t know where Rivera was going when he got up to leave the dugout after the game ended, you haven’t been paying attention.
As a kid, I was always jealous of the fans who came before me and saw Ruth, Mantle, etc.. They had those memories, but I saw Mo and I wouldn’t trade places with them for anything.
