New York papers put out at least seven articles concerning Mariano Rivera today, even though almost nothing new was said. I took the liberty of summing it up for you:
Rivera on free agency:
"Everybody has the same shot. The Yankees will not have an advantage. Everyone will have the same shot."
Jeter on Rivera leaving:
"Mo ain’t going anywhere. Mo will be right here next year. … I’m sure he’d like an extension. I’d love for him to have an extension, too. I’m sure they’ll work it out."
Not much new here. But it’s spring training and these guys have deadlines. I apologize for adding any fuel to the fire; I’m going to compensate with some Royals material today or tomorrow. This website is the last place you’re going to find an East Coast bias, but New York churns out more rumors and articles than anywhere. My two cents: Jeter is right, he’s not going anywhere.
