(NYPost)   Honored before Game 2 last night, Mariano Rivera says he's going to "go as far as I can go where people don't play baseball.'' In other news, look for Mo at Wrigley Field next summer   (nypost.com) divider line 22

"I am going to go as far as I can go where people don't play baseball.''

I hope not.  Baseball could use guys like him around.  Never talked shiat, just played the game.

nice one, subby.

Mo probably wishes he had Carlos Martinez setting him up instead of that gutless puke Tom Gordon.  Hell, we all do.

I think it would be fun for him to sign 1-game contracts with all 30 teams next season and finish 1 game for each (regardless of score). No it's not realistic, but it's theoretically possible I guess.

Well it's not like he can be a commentator unless it's fr Deportes or Telemundo.  If he ever decides to come back in the game, he should consider player development or scouting overseas.

And when he gets there, he will bury a bat in the ground, and build a temple to the God of Baseball, and finally end the curse of Luis Gonzalez.

Didnt he have a farewell tour throughout the league already?  Didnt the Bosox already have an on-field presentation for him a few weeks ago where they gave him a bunch of gifts?  Go retire already..

Fernando has been the Dodgers Spanish language broadcaster for years, and he's very popular. I don't see why Rivera couldn't do that for the yanks, though he doesn't seem like the talking type.

TFA: "Other recipients were Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Roberto Clemente, Tony Gwynn, Cal Ripken, Rickey Henderson, Rachel Robinson, Ken Griffey Jr., Ichiro Suzuki and the 2001 Seattle Mariners."

That year was so awesome when they won the world series.

Oh wait.

Having been presented the prestigious Commissioner's Historic Achievement Award by Bud Selig...

Oh, you mean the one that Bud pulled out of thin air to help futher hype the McGwire/Sosa Home Run Derby in '98, and later was also given to Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens? That "prestigious" award?

Jesus Christ, Bud Selig is just the worst.

He didn't ask for this, he was presented with an award by MLB so he showed up to accept it.

If anyone deserves 100% of the vote when he's up for the hall of fame it's him, but I just know some asshole writer is going to come up with a reason not to vote for him.

Bingo, and if he hadn't shown up, the haters would have said, "What, you're too good to accept another award?"

Guess this was the only way that MLB could ensure that the Yankees would be part of the postseason.

Mariano might want to consider throwing that trophy back.

No one will ever get 100% of the vote.  There will always be a few writers who insist on never voting for *anyone* on their first year of eligibility.

Nolan Ryan was 98.79%
Cal Ripken Jr. was 98.53%
Tony Gwynn was 97.61%

Let you said, there are always a few people who vote no just because they can.
It wouldn't be baseball if there wasn't some asshole gumming up the works for no other reason than to stroke their own ego.
