    I'm finding it difficult to wrap my head around the idea of Mariano Rivera closing out his career at Minute Maid Park.

    And the Halos equalize the next time up in the 7th. Good game. Now 5-5. Slugfest with the Rangers clearly much more desperate. Guessing that either helps them...or hurts them. We'll know soon enough.

    Somehow I think Cleveland is much more likely to make it to and through an LDS than Texas but who knows?

    It should have ended at Yankee or Fenway...mostly Yankee.

    Exciting finishes in Texas and Minneapolis.

    Indians hang on to win 6-5 despite going into the 9th up 6-1.
    Rangers walkoff bottom 9 with a Profar HR to RF and a 6-5 win there.

    So no change in the AL Wildcard standings other than the fourth-to-last opportunity for the Rangers to close the 1-game gap passing them by.

    The smart money is probably on Cleveland to square up with the Rays on Tuesday while we play Pittsburgh. The Indians hold the 1-game lead and, as important, they have the Twins to finish up this weekend while the Rangers will continue battling Trout, Trumbo, Pujols, Hamilton, etc.

    Wait Mariano Rivera is retiring!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?! Why hasn't anybody said anything????? Is he quitting because they had him come in to pitch the 8th and that is not allowed by the closers' union?

    I have come to the conclusion that Mariano Rivera is the most overrated athlete of my lifetime. The guy was a good player, but nowhere near deserving of all this stuff.
    This is the time. The real Reds organization is back.

    Mariano Rivera:

    ERA+ is #1 all-time (2.05)
    WHIP is #3 all-time (1.00)
    K/B ratio is #4 all-time (4.10)

    I don't even care about the saves.

    He's also going out at the top of his game. Admirable in and of itself.

    Maudlin, pompous, and overbearing - the Yankee way.

    A tribute to Rivera's basic dignity that he hasn't looked like a jackass through this entire season-long encomium.

    That was, by far, the classiest exit I've ever witnessed. Having Pettitte and Jeter come and take him out was a genius move.

    I don't care if you like the closers role or not, the save stat or not, Rivera would've been a HoF'er in any pitching role.
    2014 predictions:
    99-63 WS champs (Cards take 2nd WC, Mil 3rd, Pit 4th, Chi 5th)
    Bruce/Votto neck and neck MVP race (neither takes it)
    Bailey CYA winner
    Hamilton ROY & GG
