A few thoughts on diverse subjects

Baseball (love those Yanks)

On the baseball diamond, the greatest relief pitcher in history, Mariano “Mo” Rivera, may well have done himself and the New York Yankees a disservice by announcing his retirement weeks before the start of the regular season. What was Rivera’s rush? Could he not have waited until the post-season? No matter how great an athlete and closer Rivera has been, such an early March proclamation could negatively impact his own competitiveness and pitching prowess, not to mention teammate performance and overall club morale. As a Yankee fan, I certainly hope I am “off-base” about all of this, but only the months ahead will tell.
