Uh oh, Yankee fans. Mariano Rivera seems to have been taking lessons from a pair of Red Sox superstars:
"I definitely want to finish my career here, but if they don’t give me the respect I deserve, I have to move on," Rivera said. Asked if he felt he wasn’t being given that respect, Rivera responded, "The Yankees always give me the respect. When it comes to these times (contracts ending), I don’t like to talk about it. It’s a business.
"If they have somebody who will do the job better than I do, they will do it. I don’t worry about those things. When the time comes, if they want me back, they want me back. Otherwise, I am not going to sit in my house crying. I have to move on. I would definitely love to be a Yankee and finish as a Yankee, but I only have one more year for that."
Apparently the Yanks want to wait to see if Rivera can make it through this year healthy. Next thing you know, Mo will make Scott Boras his agent. Over/under on the first "Mo Money" hed from the tabs — 2 days.
