MLB: Steinbrenner says no extensions for Jeter, Rivera

AP Sports Writer

NEW YORK — Hal Steinbrenner says the New York Yankees won’t alter their policy against contract extensions and will deal with Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera and Joe Girardi after the season.

Speaking Tuesday following a news conference to announce details of the first bowl game at new Yankee Stadium, the team’s managing general partner says he doesn’t believe in extensions “no matter who it is.”
Jeter and Rivera can become free agents after the World Series, and Girardi’s three-year contract expires after the season.
Steinbrenner says his policy is “nothing personal.”
