The New York Yankees have let it be known outfielder Johnny Damon can be had, news that’s been met with little enthusiasm. Damon is owed $13 million in each of the next two seasons. If he remains at or around .247, the 33-year-old Damon will have seen his batting average fall at least 30 points in successive seasons.
Little enthusiasm, huh. Thats a big surprise. Hey Cash money, take a little page from the Jim Hendry book of GMing and trade Damon back to the Royals for a PTBNL. You might see a boost in your offense. It worked with Izturis!
All this “arrogance” coming from New York and Boston all of a sudden… I considered that maybe the Cubs trading Ronny Cedeno straight up for Johnny Damon might make sense for the Cubs. But that lasted about 5 seconds when I remembered Jacque Jones plays CF for les Cubs.
