Rivera expects to be ready for Spring Training after surgery…


… on his vocal cords. Third time with that joke is a charm, no? Anyway, Marc Carig spoke to the greatest reliever of all-time today, and Mariano Rivera said he expects to be ready for Spring Training when camp opens in about five weeks.┬áCarig says Mo sounds like his normal self following surgery on vocal cords, but frankly I don’t think it was his voice that many of us were worried about. Glad everything’s okay.

    Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me. Fool me three times? FML

  2. Jamey says:

    Hopefully he’s ready in time for The Grammy’s,

  3. Virgil Earp says:

    He better be ready. We need him, especially without Jorgie. Hank will still probably force Cashman to sign a big name reliever to an overpriced contract so we can lock down the 5th inning.

    • Thomas Cassidy says:

      Without Jorge? I know how important he is to the team and in the clubhouse, but he’s replaceable. He isn’t exactly Sabathia or Cano.

      Should I post this? Am I being trolled?

  4. Will (the other one) says:

    Praise be.

  5. Mister Delaware says:

    Technically, I like Mariano even more when he’s not talking so …

    • Wil Nieves Number 1 Fan says:

      Mariano has a very charming Panamanian-Spanish-to-English accent. I can’t help but smile when I see Mo being interviewed.
