Do you hear that noise? It’s the sound of Yankee fans celebrating.
According to a report in the New York Post Mariano Rivera has called GM Brian Cashman and told him that he wants to play in 2013. Rivera, who missed most of last season after tearing his ACL, was unsure about his return in recent weeks according to sources.
So, Yankee fans can exhale. We have our iconic closer back. All that needs to be done now is for the team and Rivera to work out a deal for the 2013 season – Rivera made $15M last season.
This news has made my Saturday a whole lot brighter. Hopefully Mo will be close to 100% when he makes his return but even if he isn’t, just having him around will be a big boost for the club.
