Found February 03, 2014 on YanksinExile.com:
With some recent announcements of players retiring and the farewell tour Mariano Rivera received during the 2013 season, I thought we should take a look at some players who will be eligible for the Hall of Fame five years from now. Mariano Rivera: 1,115 G, 82-60 W-L, 2.21 ERA, 1,284 IP, 652 SV Now the question isn’t if Rivera is a Hall of Famer but is how much of the vote he can get. The 13-time All Star’s record 652 saves speaks for itself but his success in the postseason is also going to boost his vote count. His total saves record may never be broken.

The prospect ratings are in, and the Yankees are generally ranked in the bottom third of farm systems. But what about last year?

Yankees: Super Bowl is over…. do you know what that means?

Seattle (Photo credits: www.roadtrafficsigns.com) My weekend’s goal was to muster up enough energy to watch Super Bowl XLVIII, which turned out to be as exciting as watching paint dry.
