2009 Stats: The only closer not to blow a save in the postseason
Mariano Rivera continues to defy age and the laws of physics with his dominating cutter and performances. Nobody is as reliable in a big spot as Mo. That's why they call him, Mr. Reliable. While onlookers watched in awe, and opposing closers wept, Mariano converted every save opportunity he had in the postseason. That run of success helped the Yankees win the World Series, and saved at least 10 orphans from certain doom.
As he has in the past few years, Mo will struggle a bit in April. This will largely be due to the fact that he only throws about six pitches in Spring Training. He then will continue to dominate the league and will finally win the Cy Young. After single-handedly winning the World Series by ending each of the first four games, inexplicably played in the NL park though the Yanks had home field advantage, with go-ahead tenth inning home runs, he re-signs with the Yankees for a contract larger than A-Rod's in both years and money.
