Found March 13, 2013 on Lady At The Bat:
We learned yesterday that the Miami New Times will not be handing its Biogenesis files over to Major League Baseball after all.  I am guessing this means that MLB won't have enough evidence to prove that Alex Rodriguez and others purchased PEDs. If that is the case, look for A-Rod to finally break the silence he has imposed on us all since this story broke.So what will he say? Nothing of course. He will talk about his surgically-repaired hip and how the rehab is going. He'll probably say more about Mariano Rivera (and perhaps explain what he meant when he said Mo was "arguably" the best closer ever).

Enter Sandman: The Mariano Rivera Farewell Tour

All good things must come to an end. This is certainly true right now for the New York Yankees. Mariano Rivera recently announced that the 2013 season would be his last.
