Rivera showed us once agian last night why he should be in the running
for the Cy Young award.
Not only do you expect him not to give up a run--it's shocking to see him
let a baserunner on. TRULY ***. YANKS MVP.

  I agree he should be in the running.  But I think a couple of bad late
season outings, in my mind, put him behind Hentgen.  If you're going to
be considered as a reliever, you've got to be flawless, the way
Eckersley was back in the late 80's. If Rivera kept his ERA at around
1.5, he would've been Cy Young.

Thank you.  He is my Cy Young.

Fair point. Another point to think about is that Rivera by playing in New
York gets the media attention he deserves despite being a middle
reliever. Last year Troy Percival as a setup man had similar if not
better numbers than Rivera has although he pitched about 30 fewer
innings.
