    I was thinking he'd retire this year, but it may be coming sooner than planned!

    Well, his ACL died, as did Derrick Rose's and Iman Shumpert's.

    Robertson has a below 1 ERA and ridiculous strikeout numbers. The successor (though obviously not the best closer ever i.e. Rivera) is already in place.

    P.S. They better sign him to a longterm deal and soon

    How is it possible to dislike Mariano Rivera?

    The latest is they'll hand the job to Soriano, who was a closer and doesn't much like the setup roll.


    Gives Robertson time to develop and then if Soriano blows, they have an alternative.

    I am far from a Yakees fan, but Rivera is/was a solid closer. Plus, he seems pretty humble.

    He does a lot of public service stuff too.


    Overall, a pretty nice guy who just happens to be the best closer ever.
