Slanted or just false, take your pick with the Baltimore Sun's article

"New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera, out since Aug. 31 with a muscle strain near his right elbow, will get one more day of rest before testing his arm again. Rivera is to throw tomorrow in Baltimore, manager Joe Torre said yesterday before New York closed a three-game series against the Kansas City Royals."
  • The Sun published this on Sept. 7, but Rivera pitched in Detroit on August 31. Therefore he's only been out since Sept. 1st. This erroneous statement about Rivera has run in other publications. They also fail to mention he lead the leagues in IP among late inning relievers. It never ends.
