From the Daily News -
A deal to bring Mariano Rivera back to the Bronx may be in the works, as the All-Star closer and his agent are meeting with the Yankees Tuesday at Legends Field.
Fernando Cuza, who represents Rivera, showed up at the Yankees’ spring ballpark around 11:45 a.m., accompanied by two of his associates. Ten minutes later, Rivera arrived by himself in a black Mercedes.
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.
Team president Randy Levine arrived at Legends Field at 10 a.m., while general manager Brian Cashman pulled up to the ballpark shortly before 11 a.m.
Three years at forty million should be enough to get this done. Let’s hope that it happens quickly – and Posada too – as that might get Pettitte interested in coming back for another year.
