Phew! Rumor has it that the greatest closer in the history of baseball will stay in pinstripes.
One team supposedly offered Rivera three years at $17 million a season.
The only response to 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.
Last season Rivera posted a 1.80 ERA, over 60 innings of work. Mo made 33 saves in 2010.
Rivera’s cutter is still baffling hitters after 16 seasons.
Add that talent to a most intimidating presence on the mound and it is so hard to imagine the most graceful and humble demeanor is behind such an existence.
Mariano Rivera is just all class.
Mo and the Yankees Universe are finally breathing for the first time this offseason.
