Mariano Rivera taped ESPN’s Sunday Coversation yesterday. It’ll be on the 11 p.m. Sunday edition of SportsCenter.
Mo was asked about Jonathan Papelbon’s statement (since retracted) that he would play for the Yankees.
“If he wants to do that, he’ll have to wait for me to retire,” Rivera said. “You know, then I think he has a shot at that. Besides that, he don’t have a shot at that.”
On PEDs: “The reason why I’m laughing is because I don’t even drink coffee. And if I don’t drink coffee, I would never put in my mind or think to put that in my body. If the talent that God has given me is not enough, well, I’ll have to quit. When I leave this game I know deep in my mind, deep in my heart that I was clean.”
