Steinbrenner: No Extension Talks For Jeter, Rivera, Or Girardi
Hal Steinbrenner says that the Yankees won't alter their policy against contract extensions for Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera or Joe Girardi.
"Everybody does business in a different way," Steinbrenner said Tuesday, "I just don't believe in contract extensions, and that's throughout the organization, no matter who it is. Hopefully nobody takes that personally. It's just business."
Jeter, Rivera and Girardi are all entering the final years of their contracts.
"I've got a great relationship with them all," Steinbrenner said. "I've expressed to all of them that, `You're part of the Yankee family and you're wanted. It wouldn't be the same without you.' But as far as no extensions, it's a business policy of mine."
