  • And then there’s the surprising news about Longoria likely to miss the rest of 2012.

    No, I’m not a Yankee fan. I don’t know if that inserts bias into this or not. (Nor am I a doctor.)
    As Mo goes, do you want that rushed? That was a very serious injury, and they seem to have figured out that back end of the bullpen stuff, having been well-stocked to begin with.
    Robertson and Soriano are healthy and getting it done.
    Let Mo heal. Play it safe.

  • I’m not saying the guy can walk on water, but it’s hard not think that he’s going to do exactly what is necessary to be back on the mound as soon as “healthfully” possible. and then shave five minutes off of it.

  • I hear you IBM, but Mariano’s greatest value has never been his regular season save percentage. it has been his absurd and unrivaled post-season numbers, where so many other great closers crumble. In 2009, every great closer blew a save, except Mo. I love what Soriano and Robertson have done. And if Mo thinks he can be back before the end of the year, I definitely want him back so we could have him in October.

  • If he wants to play again this year, he will.

    He’s not human. He’s a golden god.

  • All true. He’s defied the odds his entire career. Only thing that explains anything is that he’s smart and a terrific athlete.
