The chances of him coming back from knee surgery at 42 are slim to begin with. The longer he waits, the slimmer those chances are going to be.

The blood clot in his leg has to be treated first before they can do the surgery.

I believe Mariano's injury took the heart right out of The Yankees. They are now vulnerable without the safety net of their closer.

Rivera having had a stellar career, I don't want to see it ended this way.

It would be one of life's cruel ironies.

Godspeed to Mariano Rivera.
