The New York Yankee’s Mariano Rivera will have a chance to make history tonight against the team’s crosstown rivals, the New York Mets.

Rivera is one save away from earning number 500. When he completes the feat, Rivera will be only the second member of the 500 Saves Club, behind the Brewer’s Trevor Hoffman. The 9-time All-Star and owner of a 2.31 career ERA has pitched two consecutive evenings, so there is some question whether manager Joe Girardi will trot him out tonight.

Mo' saves, mo' problems.

I’d look for him to come in, no matter what, and record the save in dominating fashion. He’s the best closer to ever play the game and I don’t see any reason why Girardi would hold him back. Rivera’s probably rearing to go.
