Yankees Set To Offer Mariano Rivera A Pay Cut
Not that we should file this kind of news anywhere but in the "expected" section but the Yankees announced that they are planning on giving Mariano Rivera a pay cut this season to close for the Yankees. Mariano Rivera cannot and should not expect to make as much or more then he did in 2012 after missing most of it with an injury and entering his age 43 season. This is much like when Andy Pettitte re signed here for an incentive laden contract that, with the escalators, brought him up to a respectable salary. I expect and I hope for some of the same for Mo because if anyone deserves a little wiggle room with these negotiations it is him.
