NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Mets chief operating officer Jeff Wilpon had a gift for Mariano Rivera in one hand and a white flag in the other.
Some Mets fans were already a little bothered by the Yankees closer getting the first pitch for Tuesday’s Subway Series game at Citi Field. Then Wilpon gave them something else entirely to gripe about.
“I wish we could see you in the World Series,” Wilpon told Rivera during a pre-game ceremony. “But I’m not sure that’s going to happen.”
Rivera, set to retire after the season, responded: “You never know.”
