Joe stated that Rivera will only pitch the ninth inning. Wow, Joe is definitely protecting A-Rod by pushing him down a few notches and I just hope Mariano is healed. He looks great and this bullpen is  deeper than it has been thanks to Bruney, Proctor, Villone and Meyers, but why did he go out of his way to announce that? Also of note is that Farnsworth is never used on back to back days.
