Yesterday evening, during Yankees bating pratice, Mariano Rivera was feilding during batting practice to stay fit, when he collapsed going for a ball. All though originally reported as a torn ACL, the Yankees now say on their website that it is a ‘right knee injury”. Although may people say that this is likely the end of his career, Mo seems to think otherwise. Rivera explained that he does not want it to end like this, and even if this is the end of the season, he will be back in 2013.
In Jays news, Morrow obtained a shutout yesterday against the Angels, to complete a 5-0 win. Play in game 2 has just begun. The Jays are now 15-11.
It has been a long, long time since i have last posted and a lot has happened, sorry for the delay, but posts will get back to regular now.
After an interesting 12-10 start, including a four game sweep of Kansas and getting swept by Baltimore, the jays are facing Yu Darvish and the Rangers right now. The score is 4-1 in the top of 7 (updates to come).
One thing is clear for the Jays this year, if they want to do well, they have to be able to beat the weaker teams that they have done well against in the past. Giving up easy games ay very well be the teams dowfall this year.
In other MLB news, 19 year old Bryce Harper has started his play for the Nationals. In his first game, he got a double and a sac fly. Washington is hoping the 1st overall draft pick in 2010 will pay off.
***FINAL: 4-1 Texas. W: Darvish (4-0) L: Drabek (2-2) SV: Nathan (6)***
With Lou Piniella retiring yesterday and
bobby cox retiring at the end of the season it marks the end
of an era of great baseball managers. But new young managers
are coming into replacement that might someday be the same or
even better. Good luck in retirement Lou!
