Mariano Rivera Featured Yankee Card of the Week

After he turned 40 yesterday, I am choosing Mariano Rivera as the Featured Yankee Card of the Week. Last year, he collected his fifth World Series ring by doing possibly the most a closer has ever done in a World Series.

Oh, and he had one of his best years of his career, at 39 years young. He was picked to his 10th All-Star team and received votes for the MVP award for the ninth time.

According to Baseball Reference, Rivera has the highest ERA+ of all-time, which is a statistic based on ERA but has other adjustments factored in. A 100 is average, below 100 is below average and above 100 is above average. Rivera is at 202.
