Gotta go to Mo's....spitball?

So what's the story? Did Mariano Rivera really throw a spitball in Monday's game. Check out my thoughts on it - I wrote a piece for The Faster Times on the issue.

I also talked to Met fans about their feelings about a possible Yankees-Phillies World Series. Read the piece to see who Squawker Jon is rooting for.

And finally, Squawker Jon took a look at whether teams can come back in the playoffs after a gut-wrenching lost like last night.

MLB cleared Mo's name saying there's absolutely no evidence to support the claim that he spat on the baseball.

Not to sound like a shill, but let's think about it for a minute. Why would an intelligent, 39-year old veteran pitcher, on national television, in front of six umpires, a slew of cameras and other media devisec everwhere, so blatantly spit on a baseball??

If this were real, it would've turned up on a legitimate newsreel or videofeed, not some Yankee-hating Angel fan's doctored video posted on an Angels blog.

Emp, you make complete sense, except for one thing.

Kenny Rogers in the 2006 postseason.

Of course, Mariano Rivera is not Kenny Rogers. He knows when to hold 'em. And he's decorated our life.
