I’m a few days late on this but…
Mariano Rivera closed out Monday’s 6-4 win over the Twins with His 43rd save of the season. Not only did it give the Yanks a five-game lead in the division but it also marked the 602nd save of His illustrious career. He also got another today to clinch a playoff spot before the Yanks swept a doubleheader to take the division title.
Not much else can be said about Mo, He is now officially the greatest closer ever…even by San Diego’s standards. Take a look at some of the videos I took at the game. I finally got a real camera so you won’t be subjected to crappy crackberry pictures.
Congratulations Chris Parmelee, you’ve just become the answer to a trivia question…now sit the f’ down.
Here’s His curtain call after the game:
