This AP story BY ROB MAADDI* published on FoxSports.com:
Congratulations, Yankees and YES! WITHOUT FEAR OF CORRECTION OR CONSEQUENCE, RIVERA AFTER 12 CONSECTIVE POST-SEASONS IN LATE-INNING RELIEF AND 11 REGULAR SEASONS IS MISTAKENLY DESCRIBED MERELY AS "A DOMINANT CLOSER FOR SEVERAL YEARS."
Again proving I'm right as I've documented on this blog and elsewhere. The baseball media in power has successfully downgraded Mariano Rivera for all time. Honorable mention goes to his weak agent, Fern Cuza.
- "A" dominant closer...for "several years"....he doesn't even get to be "the" dominant closer....SINCE THE 1995 POST SEASON THROUGH THE PRESENT.
