Mo & Marte to take the mound on Tuesday


Via Chad Jennings, Mariano Rivera and Damaso Marte will make their long awaited Spring Training debuts on Tuesday night against the Astros. The last time we saw those two on the mound, they were busy recording the final seven outs of Game Six of the World Series. Chan Ho Park, meanwhile, will throw live batting practice later today before getting into a game later this week.

Those three will probably get about eight innings in before the season starts, which is pretty normal for veteran relievers. Mo won’t travel at all, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Marte and Park didn’t either.

    After the world series Mo said he felt he had an injury to his ribs. Has anyone heard about it since?

    • steve (different one)

      He merely meant that he felt a twinge from the time he gave up a rib to create womankind.

        The woman made from the rib will marry Hey Zeus, and their son will be the greatest catcher/closer of all time. The baby’s name…..guess.

          Kevin Whelan?

          …and he shall be called Melvin?

          • Andy in Sunny Daytona

            Close. Melvin is his uncle . His name is Casey Kelly Gary Sanchez.

            • Colombo

              I was going to go Casey KKelly, but then I realized taht it would be an insult to imply he could only catch and close.

              Also, funny story, just heard on the game broadcast that Matt Weiters used to catch and close at Georgia Tech. Are you one of the broadcasters, Andy?!?!
