Mo graces the bullpen with his presence

By

While A-Rod dominated the day, the Yanks received a spark of good news amidst the injury chatter. Mariano Rivera, coming off a minor shoulder surgery, threw his first bullpen of the spring today and felt good just like we knew that he would. Rivera took a mound session at about 85-90 percent today and plans to get a few more of those in before facing batters on March 17.

            It wasn’t really a request/suggestion.

              Jeez Ben did I touch a nerve?

                It’s not a nerve. We just grew a little sick of the unnecessarily long user names after TSJC and Donnie Baseball had a pissing contest over it in January.

                Okay Ben you win, but I thought it was worthy of a chuckle.

                • http://www.riveraveblues.com Ben K.

                  Thanks. I appreciate it. It’s nothing personal. It just got messy a few months ago.

    There is but one cutter, and Mo is his savior.

    The answer to life, the universe and everything.

    It really is that simple.
