"You never know," Rivera said when asked if he would sign with the Red Sox next year. Rivera, 37, will make 10.5 million dollars next year and shows no sign of slowing down. He went 5-5 with a 1.80 ERA and 34 SV. Rivera, who has 413 career saves, said he will not talk about his contract during the season.
The Nationals have agreed to minor league deals with Dmitri Young and Tony Batista. Young was released by the Tigers mid-season for his bad attitude, and will hope to crack the roster in Spring Training. Batista, who didn't play in the majors in 2005, was with the Twins in 2006 but was not resigned.
