Mariano Rivera day-to-day with a sore triceps

Game 83: Derek's Back
Staten Island's win streak comes to an end

Via Bryan Hoch and Dan Barbarisi, Mariano Rivera was unavailable tonight and is day-to-day going forward because of a sore triceps. There are no tests planned at the moment. “I’m not concerned about it, I can tell you that,” said Mo. Joe Girardi didn’t seem too concerned about it after the game either.

    Mo is day to day with outside of nyc suckitus

      Can it be a requirement for posting here that you have to have at least a rudimentary sense of the history of the last 15 years?

      • jon

        nope but there is a requirement to have a sense of humor

          Read some of the other comments around here. Without a slash tag, there’s no way to be sure that was intended humorously (unless I’d recognized your name, which I didn’t)

    Jeter returns and everything starts going to sh*t.

    • JohnnyC

      Short sample size but Nunez doesn’t play 2 games and we lose both of them. Watch this closely. Could be a real trend.

    • Monteroisdinero

      You’re lucky the RABbi’s did not scold you for being off topic. Happens to me all the time :-)

    When did this happen?

  • Derk Jeter

    did you miss me

    • Monteroisdinero

      at least you didn’t 4-3ter tonight. Tomorrow.

    • boogie down

      Are you friends with Dirk Nowitzki?

    • Thomas Cassidy

      Maybe. Do I know you, Derk?

  • Dino Velvet

    I blame Soriano.

  • CC’s third leg

    And thus begins the D-Rob mania.

    • Monteroisdinero

      If D-Rob closes a few games it will be a good thing.

      • Bently

        D-Rob is the future closer!!

      • Bob Stone

        I would enjoy seeing that and I am sure Mo wouldn’t mind.

        • Thomas Cassidy

          Only way he’ll be a closer is if he keeps his pitch counts/BBs down.

          • Jim S

            Not true. On this team, right now, he’s the closer if Mo’s not. He’ll only be a permanent closer if he keeps the BBs down.

  • Oscar Gamble’s ‘Fro

    Next thing you know Nunez’ hammy will be torn.

    • Monteroisdinero

      Not. He may play tomorrow after a “miraculous” recovery. Joe wants to give Jeter a day off in Cleveland.

  • Bently

    Yankees bad luck charm is back, let the losing begin, st Jeter is back in leadoff!!

  • pat

    That likely explains why Girardi stuck with Burnett. Nobody to come in and clean up the mess.

    What an idiot Girardi is.

    • tom

      Someone said in print a while ago that almost every time fans are truly livid over a Girardi move/non-move, it turns out someone’s unavailability led to it

  • Bob Michaels

    Anytime Rivera is hurting it should be a concern
