SI.com's Joe Posnanski on Mariano Rivera and his almost mythical dominance:
Rivera's one pitch has never lost its power. He just keeps going, season after season. Here's a challenge: Pick out Rivera's best year. Do you want 1998, when he saved 36 games for the Yankees and had a 1.91 ERA? Or do you prefer the next year, when he led the league with 45 saves and held opposing batters to a .176 average? Do you like 2004, when he saved 53 (32 by the All-Star break), or 2005, when he had a 1.38 ERA and went 1-2-3 in an absurd 38 innings?
