Mostly idiotic pathetic posts about Mo here. Shame on you.  Mo isn't old on the field.  Until he proves to be.

Some of you are missing an obvious point:  Mo will be back.  No doubt.  Moreover, Soriano was far from an automatic save when he came in.  Call me a sentimentalist or whatever, Mo is still better than Soriano, and with less bagage, too.  nc

Exactly.  As Cashman said, it's how good you are, not how old you are.  nc

Mo has an amazing cutter but only when he can reach 92-93 MPH. The problem is that before his injury he would throw around 89-90 and batters were making a lot of contact because his cutter doesn't break enough at that speed. Mo has moved away from learning a changeup so unless he can maintain a speed around 91-92, I don't see how he can remain successful. As a fan, I want him back; but maybe it's time for him to retire. I don't want to have to face the reality that Mo has turned to PEDs so he can maintain the stuff his body can no longer manage on its own.

Wow, so sad to see some people sellout on Mo after all his contributions to the team. i understand the age concern, but if and only if he wants to return, I wouldn't "demote" him to a setup man without a real cause. I can't imagine any Yankee fan wanting Mo in any other position besides closer. However, if he does decide to retire (and now would be a good way for him to end on a high note), I would fully respect that, as I'd always like to remember Mo as his best.
