Jo-Jo Reyes Buries Mariano Rivera…Sorta

Well, Jo-Jo’s dubious pitching accomplishment (matching a Major League record of 28 consecutive starts without a win) helped bury Mo Rivera’s more positive achievement down in the AP story’s 12th paragraph, despite the headline reading:

It is 12 paragraphs before we get to that little nugget, which seems a little “backassward” to say the least. Mo before Jo-Jo, Associated Press!
