Mariano Rivera to me: If he had been able to come back and pitch in '12 playoffs, there was "a good chance" he would've retired last fall.Buster Olney on twitter, as you can see above, said that if Mariano Rivera had pitched in the playoffs last season he probably would have retired. Hearing this does not make me feel good about the future of our closer beyond 2013. Then again he is 43 years old so it is not like I am not kind of expecting this season to be his farewell tour anyway.

Ivan Nova and Joba Chamberlain both faced live hitters today for the first time.
Quiet day in Yankees camp besides all the Derek Jeter ankle news that we already reported earlier. With the first full squad work out tomorrow I expect a lot more news to report so until then, let's go watch The Walking Dead.
