    Guidry, Munson, Ford, Jeter > Rivera

    you gotta discount the fact he's a 1 inning relief pitcher

    as a sox fan i guess i never really respected him,as much as a should have

    all the experts say he was the best relief man..ever

    not sure how you compare him to every day players

    He was a great reliever and a classy individual. However, you can't compare him
    to an everyday player or a starting pitcher.

    This. I'm so tired of this Mariano worship. If the guy isn't good enough to be a starting pitcher then who the fuck cares? The ONLY reason he's getting so much attention is because the media sucks the Yankees cock. If this guy had spent his career with the Royals with the same numbers this would barely be a blip on the news.

    Can't wait until Jeter retires and we'll have to endure more of this bullshit.

    A player who pitches one inning a game will never be in that elite company.

    :lol: can't wait to hear everyone complain about it.

    However, Jeter won't announce it until the final month or in the off season because he would hate all this hoopla.
