Congratulations to Mariano Rivera. Whether you love or hate the Yankees, I believe most fans appreciate and respect Rivera. He is one of the coolest under pressure. His pitches have befuddled hitters for nearly two decades. I don’t know how he keeps going, but it is truly something to watch.
Today, Rivera accomplished something no other player in the history of Major League Baseball has done. He pitched in his 1,000th game with the same team. I hope, among all the other accomplishments, that goes on his plaque in Cooperstown.
