Rivera: “We need help in the bullpen.”

Mariano Rivera was interviewed by Michael Kay today on ESPN Radio at his restaurant in New Rochelle, Mo’s New York Grill.

Get a load of what he said:

“Velocity doesn’t mean that you’re going to do the job. Throwing hard doesn’t necessarily mean you’re going to get it done. We have big guys like Farnsworth, Proctor and Bruney. And those guys they want to do the job.

I would never say they don’t want to do the job. Sometimes it doesn’t go our way. Definitely it seems like it doesn’t go their way when they’re pitching.”

Rivera is exactly right. Those three guys try and throw the ball through a brick wall every time instead of mixing pitches and getting ahead. They throw instead of pitch.

The Yankees need to make a move. If Rivera feels that way, you can be sure that is how the core of the team feels.
