Phew! Rumor has it that the greatest closer in the history of baseball will stay in pinstripes.That is great news for the New York Yankees who are said to be re-signing Mariano Rivera for 2 more years at $30 million.
One team supposedly offered Rivera 3-years at $17 million a season.
Only response too both suitors is loyalty is not gone from sports, as Rivera wants to stay for less money and years exactly where he started.
Rivera just turned 41 years old on November 29, but he sure doesn’t show his aging on the pitching mound.
Rivera’s cutter is still baffling hitters after 16 seasons.
Add that talent to a most intimidating presence on the mound makes it so hard to imagine the most graceful and humble demeanor is behind such an existence.
Mariano Rivera is just all class.
