This AP report by Bill Konigsberg must be killing the stats guys--who may or may
not be fantasy guys. On second thought, it's probably not killing them. They all have
a solid practice of pretending Mariano Rivera doesn't exist.They rank the top 30 closers here.
However, just to continue minimizing Mariano if they possibly can & to ease their own pain, they put a picture of a different, much less accomplished late inning relief pitcher at the top of the article. (Don't forget to
look at post season stats even if it's more work).
