GTFOH: R.I.P. Mariano Rivera

Even as an Orioles Fan, I’m sad to see this. A lot of people say Saves are just a Statistic made up to make relievers feel better about themselves; but Mariano’s impact for the Yankees, especially when it counts in the playoffs, is unparalleled in any sport (except Trinity squash, google it). And to have it happen in B.P. is that much worse. Mariano, I hope you play as long as Jamie Moyer and continue to be a good example for MLB and the entire Hispanic community, even if it costs the O’s a few wins.
