Mariano's the gift that keeps on giving

Mariano Rivera's joy at winning his fifth World Series ring led to his surprise but very welcome announcement that he wants to pitch five more years. I would have expected Mo to temper that enthusiasm after a few days passed, but he hasn't back off of that statement.

Mo's brilliance is unquestioned and the fact that he was able to close out the playoffs despite a nagging rib-cage injury is beyond impressive. Joe Girardi and his staff were able to keep the injury quiet, which is pretty remarkable in this day and age in Yankee land where as Brian Cashman said "there are no secrets."
