So, is something wrong with Mariano Rivera? Here is what the Yankees are saying:
Rivera: “Physically I’m fine. I’m fine. Nothing is wrong. I’m just human, that’s all. I know you guys are trying to find something but I’m fine.”
Joe Torre: “I ask those questions all the time. If there was any question, he wouldn’t have been out there. I have no questions that are unanswered. … As I say, I don’t know anything if there is something bothering him. I ask those questions in advance. He assured me and I checked with the training staff.”
Brian Cashman: “As long as he says he’s healthy, I don’t worry about him.”
So, it seems he is fine. He just didn’t pitch well.
