When you're a Tigers fan, living vicariously is the best way to live.

Mariano blows two of three games, Yankees take series 2-1. I'll take it.

Heh, you Sox fans are easy to please, just a world title every hundred years or so, and you're set.

Red Sux fans are the greatest ...kinda like UT fans and there football program.

Back to the topic ...Mariano is still a good closer but the Sux currently own his ***, no doubt! But Mariano still owns every other ****ing team in MLB, so Sux fans can put that in there pipe and smoke it!

Seriously though, the Yankees have to face reality and start looking to the future regarding the closer position. Mariano is on the down swing of his career and I'll give him 2-3 more years tops. The same holds true for Bernie and Giambi is F-I-N-I-S-H-E-D!!! Hopefully, the Yankee brass will come to terms with this just like most Yankee fans are starting to.

The end ...

PS. A-Rod is overpaid. Field the ball and we sweep em jackass!!!

More greatness (http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=simmons/cowbell/blog) from Bill Simmons. You'll have to scroll down to the second entry as the Sports Guy has never heard of this concept the rest of us bloggers call "linking individual posts."
