Mike Lupica on the best closer in history: "Understand something."
- the best closer in history,
- the best money pitcher in history,
- a power relief pitcher and
- in the history of baseball.
- He is the Babe Ruth of what he does for a living...
- In this Yankee Stadium, in the rebuilt Stadium and not the one Ruth built,
- the man running toward the pitching mound
- is the greatest Yankee of them all."
