Mo Returns!

This is easily the most "questionable" music video of all time, but Yankee fans were most definitely dancing in the streets after hearing that Rivera will be back.

On Thursday I wrote an article about the closing situation where I went over all the free agent options, as well as a couple in house ones, should Rivera decide to retire. In conclusion I said that I hoped Mariano decided to return, because I wasn't a big fan of any of the choices. Robertson or Chamberlain may have done a good job, but their lack of experience in save situations gave me a bit of pause (not exactly fair to them... I know). And the free agent options weren't better, except for Soriano... who would cost too much.

Well, my prayers were answered, as earlier today Erik Boland tweeted that Rivera was indeed returning in 2013. I still hope the Yankees are able to add either Joakim Soria or Ryan Madson on cheap deals, as they have had much success before having Tommy John surgery last April, but it's nice to know that Mo will take care of the 9th inning yet again for the Yankees.
