  • Mariano Rivera tears ACL - out for season.

    As many of you may have heard already, Mariano Rivera got injured catching fly balls during BP. Tests revealed he tore his ACL. Mo has strongly hinted that he will retire after this season. Have we seen the last of Mo? Or will he not allow his career to end like this?

    When asked, Mo stated he does not know if he will pitch again.

    I just saw that when i was on the mlb site. I may hate the Yankees actually despise is a better word but Mo is a class act and i wish him a speedy recovery!

      Shame his HOF career had to end like this.
      Using a stolen chant from Boston Celtics fans whenever an L.A. team is playing up there just reeks of inferiority complex.

      If hitting a baseball is the toughest thing to do in sports, then pitching must be the easiest thing to do in sports.

          I'm guessing Robertson will be the closer?

            Its a shame this is the way it ended. He shouldve been able to walk off on his own power and end his career the way he wanted to to a standing O at home with all the fans and players he has played with not like this.

              He hasn't said that it is over. I doubt he'd want to go out like that - but we'll see.

                I bet he comes back next year. Didn't he say he could pitch another 5 years in spring training. I'm sure he was kidding around and I hear he's hinted at retirement but I would have to think he'll be back for at least one more year.

                  I watched Joe G's Post game conference and he hinted at it.

                    He was pretty emotional while he was being interviewed... I think he was planning on retiring at the end of the season, but now this complicates things. I would think there's a better chance of him coming back next year, just to go out on his own terms.

                      I highly doubt Mo will let his career end this way. He'll be back.

                      And it's nice to know that there haven't been any Yankee haters (so far) who are gloating about this. If there are, they should be banned from baseball.

                        Not that anyone should gloat over a person's injury, but even when it comes to "sports hate" there's no hating on Rivera. Great pitcher, class act.

                          Mo is not only the greatest closer of all time, but arguably the greatest pitcher of all time.
                          My top 10 players:

                          1. Babe Ruth
                          2. Barry Bonds
                          3. Ty Cobb
                          4. Ted Williams
                          5. Willie Mays
                          6. Alex Rodriguez
                          7. Hank Aaron
                          8. Honus Wagner
                          9. Lou Gehrig
                          10. Mickey Mantle

                            Nah, too many SP ahead of him. Definitely the greatest relief pitcher of all time, and better than the lion's share of the league's starters, but there's at least 20-30 SP you take ahead of Mo in terms of all time starters who were generational talents too, in their day. From Cy Young to Walter Johnson to Bob Feller to Bob Gibson to Nolan Ryan to Randy Johnson and a lot of guys I can't think of off the top of my head.

                              I seem to recall that there was some nut on this forum who hated Rivera for being a Yankee and thought he was a murderer due to the electrified pool accident at his home in Panama.
