The Yankees have the night off tonight before they head up North to take on the Blue Jays, who will no doubt confront the team with a bunch of homers and pitchers who can´t top 89mph on the radar gun. The off-day is important because it will give Alex Rodriguez and his achy back one more night of rest. Hopefully he´ll be back at full force come Tuesday.
In the interim, this seems like a good time for me to launch my annual Mariano Rivera appreciation campaign. I´ve said it before, and I´ll keep saying it so long as he plays, but in a way Yankee fans and analysts alike take Mo for granted. He´s so good, and so good like clockwork, that we don´t focus as much on the actual numbers he´s putting up. There´s good, and then there´s an ERA of 0.00, a FIP of 1.38, a WHIP of 0.480, zero walks and only four hits in 8.1 innings of work. Mo isn´t just off to his usual start, he´s off to one of his best starts, which is saying something. Enjoy the off-night.
