Mariano Rivera leaves a message in the Fenway Park bullpen

Sep 16, 2013, 8:23 AM EST


Last night Mariano Rivera played his last game at Fenway Park. While the game itself wasn’t very memorable, the message he left in the visitor’s bullpen  during the ninth inning was:


Pretty cool. Pretty classy.

    Harmon Killebrew approves of Rivera’s majestic looking autograph.

      *sigh* Apparently nobody recalls this article regarding Killebrew & the importance of a legible autograph (or the Monday morning crowd is just grumpy and thumbs down crazy)

      Some annoying ‘bot is generating lots of thumbs down and various Hardball Talk threads. Don’t let it bug you.

    That’s a very clean autograph.

    The very embodiment and personification of class……..

    That is one SNAZZY John Hancock. Matches the man.

    Ha, Keith Olberman is upset at the Red Sox for their gifts. What a D Bag.

    The only thing better would have been if Rivera actually had gotten to pitch an inning.

      No, for Rivera to have been needed to pitch, the Yankees would have led, and that is generally an awful state of affairs.

    People actually watch Keith Olbermann? Learn something new everyday.

    It’s pretty, but hard to read. It looks like the two capital letters are “N” and “B”

    Total class. Mariano Rivera. If the Yankees don’t make the post-season, see you at the HoF induction.

    I guess it was too much to hope that it would say: “For a good time call Derek” and his cell #. Sigh.

      Maybe on Jeter’s farewell tour, he’ll leave the gift baskets for the opposing teams…

      • historiophiliac - Sep 16, 2013 at 1:25 PM

        Well, yeah, if the opposing teams put out for him.

    He should have left a picture of a giant “unit” that A-Roid must be blowing in order to still play during his suspension.

      You mean the collective bargaining agreement? Yeah, ARod did that.
