There was a somber mood in the Yankees' clubhouse Thursday night, and it had little to do with losing to Kansas City. Rather, it was all about the loss of Mariano Rivera to a torn ACL.

"Someone else can do his job, but you can't really replace him," Derek Jeter said.

Watch Jeter, David Robertson, Alex Rodriguez and Joe Girardi react to the news Thursday night.
