USA Today- Mariano Rivera says he’s not through. Baseball’s all-time saves leader told reporters Friday: “I am coming back. Write it down in big letters. I’m not going out like this.” … Rivera also tweeted a thank you to fans, friends and his family for support, saying: “I will be OK. I will be back.”
Fuck that Mobituary I posted earlier today. I feel great shame for ever doubting the great number 42. This motherfucker does it right. Would it have been kind of eerie and and cool if number 42 was done at the age of 42 with 42 postseason saves? Sure. But Mariano has declared that he’s coming back. Sorry Mo, there isn’t a font size big enough for this sort of announcement. And Goddamnit if that first night back isn’t one of the loudest ovations in Yankee Stadium history. Can’t wait to see the G.O.A.T. jogging out to “Enter Sandman,” which he 100% still will not know the lyrics/meaning behind.
