It’s hard to believe, but Mariano Rivera’s career could be a short 10 games from its conclusion. With a backdrop of a Wild Card chase that is finding the New York Yankees on the short end of a 2.5 game lead by the Tampa Bay Rays and Texas Rangers with two teams to climb over, it’s possible, but not probable that his last games in Yankee Stadium will wind up a week from today...
