Mariano Rivera held a fan function at Mo’s New York Grill last night. Michael Kay was the host. The night included a Q&A session with the legendary closer.
One of our readers, J.J., was on hand and reported that Mo had some interesting things to say.
Rivera is against the Johan Santana deal because he believes Melky Cabrera, Phil Hughes and Ian Kennedy will develop into top-flight players
He’s sentimental about leaving Yankee Stadium and suggested he might retire if the Yankees win the World Series. “I will be hanging on to the columns and you will have to pull me out of there,” he said.
Mo told the fans that Jorge Posada is very tight with Joe Girardi and he believes their relationship will be a positive one.
