Default I guess you don't need a bullpen when you have Mariano Rivera

All the talk this year about all the setup guys for the Yanks in the pen and in the Yankees 2 wins they have gone starter for 7 and Rivera for 6 outs. That is why this guy is the best reliever in baseball and may be the best reliver in playoff history. No other closer goes 2 innings gets 6 outs and makes it look easy. I don't want to hear about Gagne, the guy never pitches in a big spot, and never enters the game with runners on base. I know the Yanks will have to use some set up guys in the next series, but Rivera is throwing great right now, the guy is amazing.

The guy is absolutely amazing. The #1 reason the Yanks have won the 4 World Series. 2 blown saves in his playoff history. Alomar's HR and the Diamondbacks game 7 I am still having nightmares about. Not to mention how awesome he was in 96 going two before Wetteland proceeded to scare the shit out of everybody and get the save. And the Yankees were flawed last year like they are this year, but Rivera couldn't go 2 innings last year and it killed them in Game 2 as El Duque was serving up gopher balls to the Halos. F*ck the rally monkey. I feel like he is human now, but he has been great so far. Time will tell.
