He's full of crap. If the Red Sox don't offer him something decent, he'll sign somewhere else, New York being a big possibility. He wouldn't be the only Red Sock to leave for New York. coughboggscoughclemenscough.
Clemens left the Sox for the Blue Jays. Get your facts straight. While we're on the topic, I can't remember, but didn't the Spankees give Clemens a Hummer b/c he was 'retiring'? And then didn't he go play with some guy named Andy Pettitte in Houston???
Very few players ever play for just one team for thier career if they have any talent, and most aren't willing to take less to be on a better team (i.e. free up money) b/c there is no salary cap in baseball.
Lol I know he went to Toronto first. But nobody thought he would go to the Yankees after all his great years in Boston. Alot of people from Boston saw him as a traitor, wanting to go to New York so that he could win a World Series, just like Boggs.
What does playing for 1 team for your entire career have to do with anything? I'm not saying Clemens wasn't expected to go to another team, just not the Yankees. Same for Boggs.
And I'm not sure exactly where Houston, Andy Pettitte and the Hummer they gave him fit into this equation, but whatever.
The point is, Damon would not be the only prominent Red Sock to go to the Yankees.
