Mo Rivera, Mo' Money

One of the biggest downsides to being out of the country is I'm going to miss all of the baseball season, post-season, spring training, hot-stove heaters, and rumor mills (thank god for Still I notice Rivera saying the Yankees have no "advantage" if he becomes a free agent.

Much as I like the idea of Rivera NOT pitching for the Yankees, is he this naive? OK, maybe he won't GIVE them preference, but memo to Rivera: They spend more money than most teams can afford in order to (futilely since 2000) build a "team" of superstars in order to win it all. So again, while I like imagining you in a non-Yankee uniform (though you can never wash your hands of all of the evil you've committed in this world), the Yankees DO have an advantage. It's called money.
