    Mariano Rivera carted off field

    Breaking news on Twitter... Mariano Rivera carted off the field during batting practice, appeared to have torn up his knee while shagging balls. Those at the game are saying it looks like a pretty serious injury. What an awful way for a Hall of Fame career to end if that is indeed the case. The Yankees are in BIG TIME trouble if he's out for the season.

    I hope it isn't as serious as it sounds. That is not how you want to see one of the best ever go out.

    They've shown it on MLB Network a few times. Weird.

    I am still not sure if it was a knee or ankle/foot injury.

    Diagnosed by the Royals staff, for now, as a twisted knee. Heading for an MRI.

    Looked like he hyperextended it.

    ...why is a team letting its 42 year old closer shag fly balls near the wall?
    Go Gators!

    He has always done it. It is part of his routine. Keeps him loose and has been his 'running' program for 20 years now.

    Girardi says it appears to be a torn ACL. Too bad. Per Jon Heyman on twitter.

    Just an awful way for a great career to end. I have a feeling the days of pitchers shagging fly balls is over.

    He'll be back. He won't go out like that. I bet he pitches in 2013. If Moyer can have Tommy John at 48 then he can do this.

    Eh, I don't know about things going that far. Totally a freak event. I don't see the NBA outlawing fire extinguishers.
