Mariano Rivera, G O A T

~~ Yankees 6, Twins 4 ~~

NEW YORK — Monday afternoon at Yankee Stadium, the numbers finally confirmed what most already knew.

Long thought the finest closer in the history of the game, the Yankees’ Mariano Rivera shattered any doubt to the contrary by breaking Trevor Hoffman’s all-time save record with the 602nd of his career. Rivera’s perfect ninth inning ended fittingly with a cutter on the outside corner that froze Chris Parmelee and closed out a 6-4 Yankees victory.

AJ Burnett gave up 4 runs, the Yankees scored 6 thus the save situation was born. The only reason I was upset if because Kasey and I are going to the game tomorrow and I wanted to see Mo get save 602. Oh well, can’t be helped now.

Curtis got home run #41, bringing his RBI total to 115, Cano has 113. Personally I think they should both get the MVP.
