“Wait, Mo, don’t go!”

Not many players are sad to see Mariano Rivera retire- at least, not many outside of players who call the Bronx home, but maybe these players are less happy than others- since they have the best Batting Averages of active (Omar Vizquel is counted by Baseball Reference as active since the 2013 season hasn’t started without him yet) players against Rivera, with a minimum of 10 plate appearances (counting both regular season and playoffs).
