See the Yankees can have fun too.
(Mariano back at Kauffman Stadium for the first time since he blew out his ACL shagging flies.)
A day after finding out they lost Rivera for the season, the Yankees respond with a 6-2 win over the Royals.. CC 8 IP 2 ER, Jeter & Tex both with 2 run HR’s, Robertson strikes out the side in the 9th.
I’m still in shock/denial mode about Mariano Rivera being done for the season =/.. But the Yankees are STILL championship contenders. It’s gonna be very weird knowing that if/when they win #28, it’ll be without The Sandman.. wow.
As fierce as ever.
NEW YORK, NY - SEPTEMBER 21: Jorge Posada #20 and Mariano Rivera #42 of the New York Yankees celebrate after clinching the American League East division against the Tampa Bay Rays on September 21, 2011 at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx borough of New York City.

It really annoys the hell outta me when people say Mariano Rivera is “arguably” the greatest closer of all time.. HE IS THE GREATEST CLOSER OF ALL TIME! It’s not even a fuckin debate!
