Mariano Rivera to Have Surgery

Just before the Thanksgiving holiday...Mariano Rivera disclosed that he might need to have surgery.

But before any of you New York fans get up in arms, the Yankees closer is set to have polyps on his vocal cords removed on Friday.

“I don’t like surgery, but the sooner, the better,” Rivera told reporters gathered at a charity event last week.

Now...if only eBay would revoke their "human remains and body parts policy" the 42-year-old closer, who is set to make just under $15 million next season, could make some money for retirement.

Suffice it to say...this surgery will have zero effect on his pitching and the future Hall of Famer will be fully recovered by the time Spring Training rolls around.
