Lupica: Mo Rivera is first of Yankee pitching immortals
(Lupica):"When you add it all up, Mo Rivera is the first pitcher to talk about when you talk about the Yankee pitching immortals.
- And this is stated with no disrespect to the great Whitey Ford, or any of those who came before him in the Yankee rotation, or those who came after him.
Mo Rivera is right there in the front of the line with Ruth and Gehrig and DiMaggio and Mickey and Yogi."
