Mariano Rivera news - It's A Very... Very... Sad Night.

Mariano Rivera has a torn ACL, which basically means he's done for the year. Mo will require surgery to repair the ligament, which takes anywhere from 9 months to a full year to recover from. As hard as this will be for the Yankees, even with guys like Soriano or Robertson to take over the closer role, it's even sadder for fans.

Rivera is the most sure-thing Hall of Famer that I've ever seen. Nobody has done more at his position than the Sandman has. I could go on and on spewing out his achievements, but Yankee fans have already heard them all. So I just wanted to tell you how sad this news makes me.

It looked as though 2012 would be Mariano's final year in Major League Baseball, which was already going to be hard enough on me and pretty much all Yankees fans. Not only has he been so damn good for so damn long, but he's epitomized what it means to be a Yankee. Greatness on the field and off. If he indeed doesn't return to the Yankees in 2013, then this would be one of the biggest travesties in the history of the New York Yankees.

I'm really lost for words here. I want to write more, but I just can't. It hurts too much to think that the last image I'll have of Mr. Mariano Rivera on a baseball field is him on a freakin' golf cart.
