Mariano Rivera Returns To Pinstripes!!!

Posted by Mark McCray |

According to ESPN.com, Mariano Rivera has accepted the 3year/$45million extension that was offered to him by the New York Yankees.

"Rivera had been holding out for an additional year but, but a source who had spoken with both the team and Rivera's agent, Fernando Cuza, told ESPN.com's Jayson Stark that the deal will not contain any option for a fourth season.

The contract makes Rivera the highest-paid closer in baseball history. The Mets' Billy Wagner had been tops with an average annual salary of $10.75 million, and the Blue Jays gave B.J. Ryan the highest total contract for a reliever at $47 million, but that deal was over five years."

Great news!!! Now bring on Andy Pettite and lets win a World Series!!!
