However, there is always a chance that each of these players could end up in a different uniform next season.
Hal Steinbrenner was quoted as saying that negotiations with Jeter "could get messy." However, most sources are now saying that New York is willing to overpay for the shortstop.
There is probably less chance of Mariano River changing uniforms. If Mariano suddenly decides he wants a longer contract than two or three years, though, the Yankees may be willing to let the iconic relief pitcher go.
Andy Pettitte is in a different situation. The 38-year-old pitcher is likely to either stay with New York or retire. On the other hand, there are plenty of teams that need to add a veteran starter to their rotation and may offer Andy an expensive one-year deal.
