The Mariano Rivera “Thanks For Kicking Our Asses In The 9th Inning” Farewell Tour continued at Fenway last night, as the Boston Cello Quartet paid tribute to the iconic closer with a string version of his theme song, Metallica’s “Enter Sandman.” Rivera certainly seems like one of baseball’s last true gentleman players, so I hold out hope that we never have to hear about some book that exposes him as a puppy murderer and/or endangered species molester.
More than anything, I’d like for Rivera to play one more season so he has to go around returning all of the gifts that teams have been giving him.

This weekend could not have gone worse for the Yankees. That's not hyperbole. It's the simple truth. After they'd fought so hard to win 3 of 4 against the Baltimore Orioles and jumped both Baltimore and Cleveland in the Wild Card race, the Yankees went into Fenway Park and got swept. The pitching was the culprit in all three games, sinking the Yankee offense into...
