The Yankees are good, not great. And that’s probably not good enough, especially when you gauge how they gouge you at the turnstiles. $5 waters and $10 beers don’t taste too hot when the team gets cold and old.

Also rejecting the one-year guaranteed offers were the New York Yankees’ trio of Nick Swisher, Rafael Soriano and Hiroki Kuroda.

To the delight of Yankees fans, Mariano Rivera informed Brian Cashman he will return for the 2013 season.
With the start of free agency looming, the Yankees have made qualifying offers to reliever Rafael Soriano, starting pitcher Hiroki Kuroda and right fielder Nick Swisher.
We need Mariano Rivera once more — for a proper salute, for our sanity and for his sanctity. Please give us just a few more deeds under brown leaves, before He leaves.
