The Greatest

September 20, 2011

Mariano Rivera is the Greatest Relief Pitcher in the history of Baseball.

It’s been that way for years but, with baseball being a game that’s consumed and defined by statistics and records, it became official today.

602 saves.

Add 5 World Series rings.

Add 42 postseason saves with a 0.71 ERA.

Add countless clutch performances in the playoffs.

Add the class and grace that personifies Mariano on and off the field.

Untouchable.

The Greatest.
