Now That's What I Call Hardball

Mariano Rivera's contract negotiation has largely slipped under the radar this off season as Derek Jeter and Cliff Lee have taken the spot light. But not to be outdone, Mariano's camp is looking for a contract of 2 years at $18 million....per year. Yes, Mariano wants $36 million for the next two seasons. Its certainly a bold number, even an unrealistic number, but when you're sitting in the shadows and no ones paying attention, you might as well start acting crazy.

Whatever, it's Mo, give it to him.

Considering how Mo has pitched the last few years (including this past postseason), that's not even an unreasonable offer. The Yanks may end up giving him the $18M, but maybe they try to limit the contract to one year.
