“We don’t negotiate in public, but I would find it highly, highly
unlikely if both of them were not back with the Yankees. Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera are the Yankees.”
— Yankees President Randy Levine, kinda negotiating in public with Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera over their next contracts.
Not that this is a big deal or anything. I mean really, are Jeter and Rivera honestly going to take that mild, subtle pressure from Levine as an invitation to start planning their futures with, like, the Rockies or the Angels or something?
