I've been saving these up until Mariano Rivera broke Trevor Hoffman's saves record -
- Enter Sandman will play for no one else once Mo retires.
- Rivera's dominance by the numbers.
Opposing hitters talk about facing Mo.
- SBN NY on Rivera's greatness.
- Full transcript of an interview with Mo.
And some non-Rivera links:
- The Yankees will honor Roger Maris' feat of breaking Babe Ruth's home run record (on the 50th anniversary) on Friday.
- CC Sabathia has only been marginally lesser than Cy Young/MVP front-runner Justin Verlander (and actually leads him in fWAR by .1).
- A very well-written piece from a good, little blog.
- What if John Sterling had called home runs for Yankee legends of the past?
- Ian Kennedy became the NL's first 20-game winner after tossing eight shutout innings (1 H, 12 K, 1 BB) against the Pirates.
