    For those who haven't read it, this is what the Mankster is referring to. Next time, post a link:

    Surprising no one had started a topic. When the greatest postseason player of all time is talking retirement, I think that's a huge story.

    Pitcher or player, no one has been more dominant than Rivera in October.

    Not according to Mike Mussina in the Torre/Verducci book.

    Christy Matthewson's three complete game shutouts in the 1905 World Series disagree.

    Does someone want to remind me again why we have a Hot Stove League topic, or does that not apply to Manky?

    Hmmm. Rivera has five rings and Mussina has none.

    Mussina's argument is would have had at least one -- and maybe two -- if Rivera hadn't blown Game 7 in 2001 and ALCS Game 4 in 2004.
