ESPN Sunday Conversation: Rivera Talks About a Pinstriped Pap

ESPN's Bob Holzman: "Jonathan Papelbon said recently that he would be open to someday pitching and closing for the Yankees. What would you think of that?

Mariano Rivera: (Laughing)... Think he's an interesting guy... he has his own mind, his own decisions, so what I will say is that if he wants to do it, he has to wait for me to retire and then, I think he has a shot at that. Besides that, he don't have a shot at that."
