Mark Feinsand has the word: The Yankees met with Mariano Rivera and his agent today at Legends Field:
When asked if he was meeting with the Yankees, Rivera said, “Yeah. We have to see something.” Rivera declined further comment, telling reporters he would elaborate on his way out of the ballpark.
Rivera was one of five Yankees to file for free agency on Monday, the first day players were allowed to do so. The Yankees are expected to offer Rivera a three-year deal worth approximately $40 million.
No word on Mo’s comment after the meeting. But I think it would be tough for him to turn down that kind of deal.
