I thought this article deserve a special thread. Mike Lupica reflects on the greatest closer of all time. We will never see another Mo Rivera again. No one will be able to fill his big shoes as that would be asking too much, As Tom Kelly once said, "We are in the American League but Mo Rivera is in a league not in this world".

Yankees great Mariano Rivera to retire - no one in Major League Baseball history was better at his job than future Hall of Fame closer - NY Daily News (http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/baseball/yankees/lupica-legendary-mariano-sultan-saves-yankees-article-1.1282867)

We will miss Mo not only for his great talent but as a humble gentleman who had diginity and grace.

Sorry, I like Mo but, in my heart of hearts, I know that no one will ever be better than the Quis.
