The Genius Maker 2010/2011 off season 2

Rivera shows great class and things work out well.

"A deal came together, perhaps expedited because Rivera had recently received a three-year deal and more money (believed to be in the neighborhood of $17 million per year) from another team, according to the source. The source added that Rivera wanted to maintain his ties to the only team he has ever played for, and went with less money and fewer years to continue wearing pinstripes.
"'He wanted to stay loyal to the Yankees,' the source said.""

Hmmm, he took a 2 year 30 mil deal while Jeter is thumbing his nose at a deal that is way over market value. I don't have a problem with trying to get a good deal, but the Yankees did not come in at a low number, they paid him far above market value.

Now, who is more important to the Yankees winning next year? Jeter just had a bad year and we made the playoffs and won one series; if Rivera had a "Jeter" year, we wouldn't have made the playoffs.

Mo, you are The Genius Maker and make me proud to be a Yankee fan.

Now Derek it is time for you step up and be the boy scout you have been your entire career and take an over market deal to keep your image as one of the great all time Yankees!

  1. SOS...not that shocking that Lee did not come but I hope Cashman knows something that I don't. If Andy does not come back we are in big trouble. The Sox offense has passed us. Rotation is not awful. Grienke is not the answer but do you think there is any chance the yanks can pry King Felix? don't know why Seatle would trade him but I don't like our chances at the momment.
