Absolutely ridiculous. I'm a relatively new fan of the sport (I guess starting in 09?) so I don't know how common stuff like this is but i'm just not a fan.

That being said, that moment last night was absolutely beautiful.

Last night was special and I'm damn glad I went and didn't sell my tix.

I don't mind the farewell tour, but only for the best of the best. As good as Chipper was, I don't think he deserved one. Mariano terrorized lineups for 18 years, and the respect that the teams showed him, to me, was fantastic.

Farewell tours should be reserved for immortals, and Mo is exactly that.
