While Rivera was honored, a fan yelled out from his seat, “one more year.”
Although Mo was flattered, he simply pointed to Robertson and gave his own endorsement to all the baseball writers and fans in attendance. Rivera made it clear he “emptied the tank” and said, “You have a new closer right here.”
So first Steinbrenner and now Mo. Now all we need is Brian Cashman to move from his “maybe” stage and get on board with everyone else. Robertson will be the closer this season, so can there be no debate about it?
