Look at that, Mariano Rivera’s name got mentioned today!
Jeff Passon from Yahoo! Sports is reporting that Rivera is looking for a two-year deal worth roughly $18 million per year.* The Yankees, Passan says, want to offer one year.
Could be negotiation posturing by both sides. Could be a legitimate gap. Seems too early to know how exactly these negotiations will go.
* Sorry. Left that part out earlier. It’s kind of important!
