Mo's Swan Song?

There is nothing left for Mo to accomplish.  I think it's his last year, I think he would of retired after 2012 if he didn't get hurt.

I agree with the "enough with the drama" point of view. He did the same thing last year in ST and after he got hurt, said he was planning on coming back anyway. IMO, the way he pitches, he could go til he's 80.

Mo is one of my all time favorite Yankees but why play this game. He's 43 and it's natural that he's going to be asked this question on an almost daily basis. Just get it over with. It's kind of like Pettitte with the will he or won't he come back every year




Eh, it doesn't really bother me all that much. If a player is available through free agency the Yanks want more than Pettitte, they'll go get him and won't let Pettitte's decision affect them. I mean as fans and with us being emotional about our team, it'd be nice to know I guess at a certain level but still, it's his life and it's not against the rules. My only hope is that he pitches well because the Yankees really have a small margin for error here, more than in other years. If we lose Pettitte/Sabathia due to injury, Yanks are in big trouble.

Rivera can pitch at a high level for a few more years I feel but with limited appearances and this is the perfect opportunity to see if Robertson/others step up and show the Yanks they could be next in line for the Closers role. I'm looking forward in seeing Rivera back and hopefully being the lock-down closer we are conditioned in seeing. But, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a dip in his stuff and/or location. I mean, he is coming back from season ending injury and he is up there in age so anything is possible.

Just to add another point of view here ... a 162 game season, plus spring training, isn't easy ... it's not easy to commit yourself unless you are 100% sure.
