violentsalvation: Off to never never land
mr_a: The man always was a class act.
Cagey B: Glad I had a chance to see him pitch. One of the all-time greats.
Rustico: As a lifelong A's fan, I have no love for the Yankees. But that was touching.
marius2: Definitely won't be the same without Mo. Sucks that he had to go out the way he did, with the injury and then a crappy season. Still, he's done a lot and while I'd love to see someone topple him, I don't think it'll happen. Not just in the stats, but in the importance that he's had and the following.
Gosling: Roy Halladay
Gosling: And closers are notorious for blowing up after two, three seasons because they all feel like they have to throw triple-digit fireballs every single pitch. For a closer to get up to where they are, they would need to have a second, maybe even a third pitch to go to that preserves their arm, and they would have to be able to go to it often.
puffy999: I'm just annoyed that so many players that have meant more to the game have never received this kind of send-off across the league.Is this going to be a trend? Jeter meant much more to the Yankees, is he going to receive MORE of a send-off when he retires? Or do people only care this much because Mariano is still pretty freaking good?
Flappyhead: "How's this for drama?"5 bucks says they either killed his mic or the color guy elbowed him in the ribs.
The Bestest: Flappyhead: "How's this for drama?"5 bucks says they either killed his mic or the color guy elbowed him in the ribs.I'm pretty sure anyone who's ever been in the YES booth has thought about just flat out decking Michael Kay at least once.
JSam21: When you have the ability to, essentially, make a Major League game 8 innings long you're a major cog in the machine.

EvilMonkeyBoy: Nope. Not a Yankee fan, don't care about a guy who played 2 innings a game tops and blew a WS to Luis Farking Gonzalez.Glad to see him go so we can focus on the great players that at least go 7 innings a game.
Lost Thought 00: It's going to suck when his name is on all the steroids lists

Yes please: If you think this isn't a big deal, look at the demand for Astros tickets for his last game in uniform. There will be more people at the stadium that day than for most homestands this year.
WhyteRaven74: Yes please: If you think this isn't a big deal, look at the demand for Astros tickets for his last game in uniform. There will be more people at the stadium that day than for most homestands this year.There's talk he'll play outfield on Sunday. Apparently he's always dreamed of playing in the outfield, so thinking is, last game of his career, last game of the season, Girardi may just send him out there for an inning.
