I started Rivera’s Cutter in the Fall of 2006. The Yankees had just unceremoniously lost to the Tigers and despite my frustration, I realized that I still enjoyed talking about the Yankees more than anything else. And I also realized few people had the time to listen to me in person. But everyone has time to read a website at work.
I named the site Rivera’s Cutter, obviously in honor of my favorite player, Mariano Rivera. As anyone who will listen to me knows, I feel that Rivera is the only baseball player in my lifetime who is truly unique. I could see another player like Derek Jeter, or like Bernie Williams, but I’ll never see another player like Mariano Rivera.
Why you ask? Because of the cutter.
