Mo to return

After some speculation that Mariano Rivera was considering retirement,

Rivera informed general manager Brian Cashman that he wants to pitch next year, and the two sides will begin working on the details of a contract to make that happen. (Lohud blog)

So the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) among closers will be back in 2013 at the age of 43 (he turns 43 Nov. 29th). Hopefully if it’s his final year he goes out with class and a decent year. You’d hate for his superb record to end with an ERA over 4.00 or so. Especially when you see eleven seasons sub-2.00 ERA, those 608 saves, and those unreal postseason records regarding his ERA and saves in the postseason alone.

The Hall of Fame will have to wait a bit longer.
