Still the one    

With all the talk about K-Rod's race to the all-time single season saves record, and with the Yankees (ahem) struggles this season*, it's been pretty easy to overlook the season that Mo Rivera's having.
44.1 IP, 26 H, 6 R, 2 HR, 4 BB, 53 K, 1.22 ERA, 0.68 WHIP, .169 BAA.
That is straight-up absurd. To put it another way, every single one of those numbers is on pace for the best mark of his career. His greatest-reliever-of-all-time career. Even though I doubt he can keep this up, it's still nice to take a moment and realize that we're watching a man ply his trade better than anyone else has, ever.

*Not really struggling
