Yankees Re-Sign Mariano Rivera

One of the greatest pitchers in the history of baseball has agreed to take less money over less years to play for the team he wants to play for the most.

Mariano Rivera will re-sign with the Yankees on a two year deal worth $30 million sometime in the next couple of days, Christian Red of the NY Daily News reports.

Rivera had an offer of about three years worth about $17 million a year from a rival team, but turned it down to stay with the Yankees.

Rivera hasn't shown signs of aging, as he posted a 1.80 ERA and 33 saves for the Yankees last season.
