Happy Birthday Mariano Rivera

Happy Birthday ‘Mo’!!!

Mariano Rivera turns 39 years old today.  Arguably the greatest closer in major league baseball history, Rivera’s career is a picture of greatness. 

After 14 years in the majors, Rivera has amassed 482 saves ranking him second all-time.  In just 14 years in the big leagues Rivera has finished in the top 5 for the Cy Young award 5 times while being voted onto 9 All-star teams.

With 4 World Series championship rings in his pocket, what can you possibly give Mariano Rivera that he doesn’t already have???  A ring for his thumb of course…  So I give ‘Mo’ one more shot in the World Series.  Maybe we’ll see the Yankees again in the fall classic in 2009….
