do you think mariano will be re-signing the year i turn 90?

wouldn't bet against it

I think this is it for Mo, especially if the Yankees are really going to cut their payroll in 2014.

I'd love to see Mo have a great comeback and force the Yankees to bring him back.


Edited because my first attempt was insipid.

Not familiar with this guy. Is he a prospect?

Not likely. I think he made it very clear he was going to retire after last year, but after the injury he came back because he wanted to have that one last year.

Mo's been taking about retiring for about a decade now, but as long as Rivera pitches like Rivera, there are a lot of reasons to keep going.

Mo is an icon and everyone know it. Plus the business has an inflated sense of closers' value. I suspect the talks start at 1/$10M and go up from there.



I think 1/10 with incentives is how it will play. Mo takes a paycut but gets to hide behind a nice round double digit number. The incentives cover both sides and if Mo squints hard enough, he might even theorize it's not a paycut. It's only 1 year and doesn't impact the magical 2014 budget. And it puts asses in the seats just in case the Yankees struggle and aren't making the playoffs in 2013.

I'm a big proponent of overpaying for 1 year deals under normal circumstances, but double considering 2014's budget AND triple considering it's Mo. Just sign Kuroda, Andy, and Mo, throw some crap in RF, and call it an offseason.

Why would a robot need to retire?

He can no longer get the after market parts he needs to continue to play.
