I just found out Mariano's 1st words after he got hurt: "HELP, I'VE FALLEN AND I CAN'T GET UP"....Maybe he'll be the celebrity spokesman for Life Alert. LOL.....Mike Fransecsa aka the Pol Pot of WFAN was put on 24 hr suicide watch.....Many of the Bronx guidos ate tofu instead of Pasta and meatballs....Many of the "female" Yankee followers upon seeing the injury shaved their legs, put on make up and turned off the Indigo Girls and turned on Buckcherry & Dropkick Murphys....A lot of the Eggplant bandwagon phonies had a vigil and didn't smoke any weed for 24 hrs.....One guy wanted for me to pray for Mariano; give me a break lets pray for tornado victims instead of a spoiled Stankee player.....He is the 1st player to get hurt during batting practice and he WON'T be the last.....If Mariano had spent his whole career in either San Diego or Kansas City, he would just be another run-of-the-mill pitcher.....It's the Old Guidos who still worship Mickey Mantle aka the Charlie Sheen of 1957 and the MTV Bandwagon Phonies who could care less about baseball that made him famous....MARIANO IS OVERRATED, THE GREATEST RELIEF PITCHERS EVER IN NEW YORK HISTORY ARE JOHN FRANCO AND TUG MCGRAW, I REST MY CASE.

Oh and another thing. Mariano got hurt in Kansas City; I'm surprised that he's still alive. The last athlete to get hurt badly in KC wound up DEAD: That would be Owen Hart on May 23, 1999. Think about that for a minute you arrogant Evil Empire fans!!!!!!

Out of all the lunatic statements you've made in this post, one stands out because it's so ignoramusly ignorant and imbecilic:

"If Mariano had spent his whole career in either San Diego or Kansas City, he would just be another run-of-the-mill pitcher..."

Mariano would never be just another run-of-the-mill pitchers.
And that FACT is irrefutable within and among ALL involved in Baseball; from the fans to the Heirarchy of ALL THE OTHER TEAMS.

Rivera IS the best closer in ALL of Baseball.

I hope The Bronx Guidos slap the spit and the shyte out'chur mouth,'ya mental MIGETED myopic moron!!!

No he isn't. He prefers The Mets over The Yankees.
And he doesn't need help in his ratings.
All Mike Francesa needs to do is his job.
What he was hired for. And he does it well.
