Mariano Rivera will retire from MLB, after the 2013 season. The Yankees have a press conference scheduled for 10am on Saturday. Not sure that’s a huge surprise. Rivera came back this season, ostensibly to go out on his own terms, rather than Kauffman Stadium‘s.
Rivera is likable and one of the few presumed to be clean baseball players of his generation. Expect media outlets to wear this out in the dog days of July. “This could be the last time Mariano Rivera….”
Enjoy the five hours Francesa spends on it this afternoon.
