I hate the yankees to but you gotta give it to the hall of famer to close it.
funny thing is, krod is a hall of famer
Mariano deserved it since it was at Yankee stadium. Stop flipping out. Its a sign of respect for the man for everything he has done for the Yankees.
I am not a yankees fan or even a mariano fan
but just for the record and not that it even matters
KROD - 42.0IP 27H 11ER 26Walks 41Ks 2.36 ERA 1.25 whip .182 baa 38saves
Mariano - 42.1IP 23H 5ER 4Walks 50Ks 1.06 ERA .64 whip .158 baa 23saves
btw mariano hasnt blown 1 save yet this year either. and he beats KROD in EVERY Single statistics other than saves (which is team based)
the real question IS WHY SHOULD anyone other than Mariano be able to be the closer?!
