ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -The New York Yankees hope to get Mariano Rivera and Jorge Posada re-signed soon.
``We're trying to get these wrapped up. There's plenty of time to get it done,'' Hank Steinbrenner, son of owner George Steinbrenner, said Tuesday.
Talks appear to have progressed more quickly with Rivera, who met last week in Tampa with team officials.
Posada has drawn interest from the New York Mets, who aren't certain they will be able to re-sign catcher Paul Lo Duca.
``We will make significant attempts to keep them and they will have decisions to make and we hope they choose to stay as Yankees,'' general manager Brian Cashman said.
