Now, Mariano Rivera doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell of winning
this award -- too much media bias against pitchers in general and middle
relievers in particular -- but I think he definitely deserves
condisderation. The Yanks wouldn't be anywhere near the playoffs without
him, whereas nearly every other player on the team is replacable.

"You've fallen victim to one of the classic blunders! The greatest is, of
course, 'never get involved in a land war in Asia,' but only slightly less
well known is 'never go against a Sicilian when death is on the line!'"
-Wallace Shawn, "The Princess Bride"
