I am far from the first to say something about this, but by not picking up his option for 2012, the New York Yankees are cutting ties with lefty specialist Damaso Marte. This isn’t really big news as nobody expected the New York Yankees to keep both Damaso Marte and Pedro Feliciano on the DL for the upcoming season – one sack of dead weight is more than enough, thank you. I don’t know about everyone else, but I am going to miss Marte. I’m going to miss him like I miss selling knives the summer after freshman year. I’m going to miss him like I miss being the last of my friends to get his/her license in 11th grade. I’m going to miss him like I miss Brett Favre chucking interceptions while wearing the Gang Green. You get the point. At least Damaso Marte did mow down the Philadelphia Phillies in the World Series back in 2009. That was sick.
