Mo was pretty cute all those years ago when nobody had any idea he would become The Best Closer Ever. And now, at 7am Pacific Time on Saturday, he’ll say Adios at the end of this season. I’m sure there will be endless replays, but I’ll be getting up early to watch this press conference and I’ll have my Kleenex handy.
Sure, we all knew he’d call it a career this time, but it’ll still be tough to hear him say the words. I just hope it’s a great last season for him. I can’t really imagine how I’ll feel when he comes in to pitch that final game at the Stadium. As everyone knows, he’s my favorite player so I’ll probably be traumatized. But for now, I’m going to enjoy every glimpse of him.
