Is This the End of the Road for Mariano Rivera of the New York Yankees?

Future Hall of Famer and all-time great New York Yankees closer Mariano Rivera has had arguably the three worst back-to-back-to-back games of his career.  On Sunday, he blew a save versus Yankees arch rival the Boston Red Sox, allowing a run in the bottom of the ninth in a game the Red Sox eventually won.  On Tuesday, he gave up two runs in the top of the ninth to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim to lose a game.  Yesterday, he gave up a grand slam in holding on to a 6-5 win over the Angels.  Is this the end of the road for Mariano Rivera?  He has given up four runs, four hits, and two home runs in his last three appearances that have lasted 2 2/3 innings combined.  His ERA has climbed from 1.70 to 2.40 thus far this week.  Rivera will turn 42 in November.  Voice your opinion on the Razz and Jazz Sports Blog Daily Debate.

    At some point we all start to slip a little, I don’t think he’s done yet, but his ball dosen’t seem to be breaking as much as it use to or at the right time.

  2. No, Mariano is not even close to being done. He’s had a few games like this this season, he’s slipping a bit, but he’s not even close to being done.
