Pinch hitter Casey Kotchman v Mariano Rivera

The Angels brought in Casey Kotchman to pinch hit against Mariano Rivera. Baseball Reference says Kotchman had a .750 average in 5 PA vs Mariano, so I guess that's why they brought him in. (No post season, just regular). He struck out this time. Joe Torre said about a week ago he was definitely going to rest Rivera. So far, that hasn't happened. Once he went 3 days, then 2 days and 2 days, but he was allowed to get ready to pitch on consecutive days at least once within this time frame, ending up he wasn't needed. I understand Mo may be saying he wants to pitch, etc., but 2 or 3 days isn't a rest.
