It is  not often that you hear “Enter Sandman” in the fourth inning of a Yankees game.  But no matter what time the song starts, and no matter what the implications of the game are, at this point in Mariano Rivera’s career it is special, and should be cherished.  There is much talk around Yankees Universe that this may be Mo’s last season, and if it is we must soak in every moment.  It looks like Yankees fans at Steinbrenner field get it, as they gave Rivera a standing ovation as he entered to his trademark song yesterday.  Rivera went on to retire the three batters he faced on 14 pitches, and earned the win for the Yankees as they went on to beat the Phillies 3-0.  I have said it before this year already:  do not take any appearance by Mo for granted – as this may be the last time we see the greatest closer of all time pitch.
