Mariano Rivera’s Race To 500 Saves!!! Part 8

Mariano Rivera’s Race To 500 Saves!!! Part 8

Rivera couldn’t get into the game last night, which brings the total to 4 straight games with no action. 

I need to re-visit my stance on this a little now, because I would hate to have one of the greatest closers in the game’s history play my team for a 3-game series and not have the chance to see him do what he is famous for…  But I don’t want to see him beat the Marlins either.

This is a tough one…  Enjoy Atlanta, Mo!!!

Did You Know…

Rod Carew is the only American League player ever to win a batting title without hitting a single home run.  He accomplished this in 1972 with a .318 batting average.

My take – A true artist at the plate.  ‘Nuff said!!

Happy Father’s Day!!!

Happy Father’s Day!!!

If you’re a dad or a son or a daughter, take some time today to sit back and relax.  If you’re able to spend a little more quality time with your dad today then let him know just how valued of a man he is in your life.

And if you get the chance, take in a ballgame with him too. 

Kind of like these guys did…
