How Great is Mariano Rivera?

Brad Lidge has incredible stuff as we all know, but to see him give up huge home runs in back to back games made me think of Mariano. He's not perfect, but  there has never been anyone like him in the history of the game.
Joel Sherman has the numbers to prove what we already know.
The loss to the Angels really hurt me this time because I wanted Rivera to drink that champagne. He is the player that I've been rooting for the hardest to win another ring-but his time is winding down.
