Miguel Cabrera’s legendary stand off with Mariano Rivera

The Detroit Tigers are ready to duke it out against the New York Yankees in a three-game homestand at Comerica Park. Whenever the New York Yankees roll into Detroit, I always go back to the game in 2017 where Miguel Cabrera fought Austin Romine, the benches cleared THREE times, and eight different players and coaches were ejected.

Yankee Hall of Famer Mariano Rivera lunches in East Rutherford

Bartender Katie Kripsgans did not believe the man on the other end of the phone line. After securing a table for five for lunch at Vesta Wood Fired, a casual Italian spot in East Rutherford known for its brick-oven pizza and hearty Italian dishes, the man said that he would be bringing along Yankee Hall of Famer Mariano Rivera, considered to be the best relief pitcher of all time.

25 Smartest Moves of the Past 25 Years: Yankees extend Mariano Rivera

Back in 1990, the New York Yankees signed a rather diminutive starting pitcher out of Panama named Mariano Rivera for $3,000. After pitching quite well in short bursts in the minor leagues for five years, Rivera was ultimately called up to the big leagues in 1995 and promptly disappointed to the tune of a 5.51 ERA. He was eventually transitioned to the bullpen, dominated as a setup man in 1996, became closer in 1997, and the magic continued from then on.

Mariano Rivera, Billy Wagner, and a Hall of Fame standard

If you follow the NHL, you know that for the first time, there is a player with a real shot at challenging one of Wayne Gretzky’s numerous career records. Alex Ovechkin is 140 goals shy of the Great One’s 894, and at age 36, it’s pretty much a coin flip whether he gets to that mark or not. Should he not get to 895, I don’t think there’s any shame in that, ending up falling just short of the greatest of all time to do it.
