I think I've found the suspect

The South Yorkshire (U.K.) police are looking for a man in connection with a recent robber in the area.

There is a sketch of the man here.

I think I know who it is. It's this guy.

Does anyone have an alibi for my suspect?

Further confusing things, the robbery happened in the Sheffield area.

I'm almost 90% sure Mariano Rivera is not "white." Flimsy alibi, I'll concede, but it may perplex a jury.

Well, the Yankees were playing in Seattle on August 24. And since London is about 8 hours ahead of Seattle, the robbery would have occured at 3:30 PM PDT. The game started at 7:05 PDT, and Rivera did not pitch... someone with more free time than I should watch the archive to see if he's ever pictured.

Now, I'd imagine its like a 12 hour flight from London/Liverpool to Seattle. Assuming he committed the robbery and got right on a plane, a flight leaving London at 12 AM (London time) would arrive in Los Angeles (the site of the next game) at 4 AM PDT. The lack of sleep is probably what prevented Joe Torre from using Rivera in a tie game later that day against the Angels.

I'm glad we've finally figured that all out. But one burning question: what was in the syringe?

3 Scott Proctor's arm medicine.

Hey, I wouldn't get too hung on the white or black part. Eyewitness descriptions are far from perfect.

5 Don't I know it. I got pulled over in my brother's Camaro in Dutchess County when I was but a young one, and after the requisite "30 Cops Or More" routine, I was let go with a story about how they were looking for a black guy from Texas wanted for burglary in Binghamton, and the guy was 5'8". Only thing is, I was 6'1" at the time, so umm, why didn't that investigation skid to a halt after they asked me to step out the car?

Good times, but Mom was Not Amused.

5 Which would obviously call the whole sketch into question. Maybe it was Kevin Millar?

Arrest him now; ask questions later. (Like some time in November.)

3 I was at the August 24 game in Seattle and I have photographic evidence that Mo was indeed present.

I think we can rule Rivera out as a suspect now.

Haha, that'll do it. Perhaps we should have a new segment a la "Mystery Photo"... "Provide an alibi."

It may reveal that there are disturbing number of criminals who wear Yankee caps.

Which means that Yankee caps sell well.

If he gets arrested wearing a Red Sox cap, he'll probably blame his failure on a dead baseball player from the 1920's.
