Sherman: Yankees have no interest in bringing Damaso Marte back

Reminder: 2012 Preseason Top 30 Prospects
Mariano's last waltz

Via Joel Sherman, the Yankees don’t have any interest in bringing the still unemployed Damaso Marte back to the organization. This might sound obvious, but the Yankees love their lefty relievers and he can be had on a minor deal now following his various shoulder problems over the last few seasons. Southpaws Cesar Cabral, Mike O’Connor, and Clay Rapada are all in the fold, and at some point enough is enough. We’ll always have the 2009 playoffs, Damaso.

    Are they sure they don’t want to bring him back on a two-year 8 million dollar contract?

    • JobaWockeeZ

      We have a budget. The role of the lefty that won’t pitch is already taken and another would be a luxury. They’re probably tempted but there’s no room.

  • Paul VuvuZuvella

    Hahah. First day of Spring Training and this passes as news??

    • pat

      Who knew a bunch of guys showing up, taking physicals playing catch and scratching their balls would be so boring?

  • Cy Pettitte

    no he’ll go to the Red Sox and be a super effective LOOGY.

      At least we have their future closerâ„¢ Manny Delcarmen in camp to counter if that happens.

    IN other not-obvious news: CCs ‘hefty’, HUghes dresses like a teenaged douche, and Jeter has an affinity for the ladies.

    seriously, this was a waste of cyber ink, thanks for that Joel Sherman

  • gageagainstthemachine

    This is the kind of story a reporter (i.e. Sherman) reports as ‘news’ to justify that they’re ‘working’ and should be retained on payroll.

  • BigDavey88

    I for one am happy to know that Demaso Marte will not be returning.

  • choochoo

    Ninja Cashman, as he is often described by the Kool Aid drinkers on this blog, with another absolute stealth maneuver by deciding to not give Marte the time of day. Understandable though because he needs to keep a slot free for Mitre

    • Benjamin Kabak

      That’s like a C- minus trolling effort.

      • Havok9120

        You’re a lenient grader Ben.

      • Jesse

        choochoo a troll? Say it ain’t so?

  • Needed Pitching

    But are they interested in bringing Kei Igawa back?????

    Inquiring minds want to know.

  • Robinson Tilapia

    Wayne Franklin and Billy Traber still live.

    • Jesse

      And Alan Embree.

      • Robinson Tilapia

        Be nice to Alan Embree. He was just done by the time he got to the Yanks.

  • Dave M

    Now that is a shocker!

    Keeping an eye on Josh Romanski. This kid is better than the metrics indicate.
