"It's very hard, despite how great Mariano is, to all of a sudden pick and choose who to start discussing contracts with," GM Brian Cashman said. "If you start picking and choosing one, someone else is sitting there saying, 'Well, why not me?"' Rivera has said if he does not have an extension in place by the end of the season, every team in the majors will have a shot at him. He still doesn't see himself ending his career with anyone but the Yankees, but is open to it if that is how the situation plays out.
