    Can't believe this hasn't been mentioned yet. 2012 will be the end of the line for the great Rivera.

    OK i misread that. He says that it could be his final year. I have a feeling it will be...what else does he have left to accomplish?

    Maybe he'll take his buddy Jetes with him

    Not a chance...Jetes is gearing up for a run at Pete Rose's hit record. You know this!

    If you've blown him, you can call him Jetes...

    The rest of us just call him Derek or Jeter.

    I wanted to blow him but he's exclusive property of the Mankster. So I prefer to call him over-rated

    Given that he was still the best reliever in the league by several orders of magnitude at age 42, I don't think he'll fold like that. Barring an injury (always a possibility), he'll still be the best reliever in the league next year or pretty damn close to it.

    Love the Yankees or hate them, you can't help but be impressed by what Rivera has done at a position that typically has a very short shelf life, even for the best closers.

    So to recap, Mariano Rivera "indicates" that 2012 "might be" his last year. And this is news ... how?

    2012 also "might be" the last year for every player in MLB, and the last year on Earth for everyone who posts on this board ...

    Too lazy to read the link, but didn't he say earlier in the year he's interested in pitching five or six more years? He could have it in him. Then again, one bad month and he could be on the street.
