Rivera says he'll consider offers from other teams
TAMPA, Fla. -- Mariano Rivera had this warning for the New York Yankees: If he becomes a free agent, he'll consider offers from other teams.
"Everybody has the same shot," he said Wednesday. "The Yankees will not have an advantage."
Yankees general manager Brian Cashman called the 37-year-old closer Tuesday night, a day after Rivera said he was hoping for a contract extension. Cashman told Rivera his preference is to push back the matter until after the season.
