It’s official: The Moose is Golden

After being unjustly left off the All-Star team by that rat fink Terry Francona* and somehow not being named Comeback Player of the Year, the Moose gets a little hardware for the mantle in Montoursville.

This is the seventh career Gold Glove for Moose, the first since 2003. Funny how winning 20 games somehow made him a better fielder.

* I’m kidding about Francona, of course. He actually handled the All-Star Game perfectly and treated the Yankees and Yankee Stadium with tremendous respect throughout the process.


In other news, the Yankees have officially declined their $6 million option on LHP Damaso Marte, making him a free agent. They would receive two draft compensatory draft picks if he signs with another team. Brian Cashman indicated earlier this week that they could try and retain Marte with a new deal.
