Rivera had blood clot in calf

Yankees closer Mariano Rivera was hospitalized overnight this week with what was diagnosed as a blood clot in his right calf.

Rivera has been given blood thinners to treat the calf and says that it will not affect his recovery from his season-ending right knee injury.

“I’m OK,” said Rivera, who admitted that he was scared by the diagnosis. “I’ve never heard anything good about blood clots.”

Rivera said that no date has been set for his surgery so he can strengthen the knee. He also said that he had been leaning toward playing in 2013 even before the injury in Kansas City.

“The traveling, I hate it,” he said. “And the playing, I love it.”

My Granny rooted for the “Highlanders” WAY back when..lived a few blocks from “THE Stadium”, listened to the games on the radio on the roof while seeing the lights & hearing the roar. Hard to see anyone go, The Mick, Joe,..even Jorgie, all of them. Maybe Mo wants to go home….”Gotta go to Mo”….

Don’t count out Mo in late September. Remember, this is a guy who needs very few innings to be ready in the spring. Got to admit, Dave Robertson made us a little nervous last night. However, I noticed both Soriano and Robertson throwing Mo like cutters—–did anyone else notice?
