Looks like ol' fruit bat is going to test the market this off-season:
"They had the opportunities and they didn't do nothing with me," Rivera said, according to the Star-Ledger of Newark. "So we'll see what happens. ... This is a business. Nothing against the New York Yankees.
"They figured it was the best for the team and I'm OK with it. ... We'll see what happens. But I would never hold anything against [the Yankees]."
I'm not sure what teams are going to be interested in Rivera. Maybe a National League squad that can spend a little bit of money? I don't think Rivera deserves $15 million a year (exaggerated number) but with the market nowadays he could really rake in a lot of money after a sub-par year.
The question, however, is what he gets paid for. His 2007 performance, or everything prior to that?
Any takers for a set-up man?
