Throwback Thursday: Mariano Rivera, The Beginning

Mariano Rivera is without the shadow of a doubt the greatest closer in the game. Now he has the number to back him up since he clinched his 602 save last week, the most of all-time *Kanye Voice*

Well there was a time when Mariano wasn't a closer, he was merely just the set up man for John Wetteland. That was back in 1996 when Wetteland was a beast. As beasty as he was it was Mo's emergence during the playoffs that year that we all (at least baseball fans) remember. And it's where the Legend of Mo began...well that and his first career save:
