Good luck Damon, you're not really that good. :-b


It's also funny that he thinks that he assumes that the Yanks would even want him let alone give him a 6 year contract. Dumbass.


I'm pretty sure the Yanks would like to sign him, they will go after the best CF available (I don't know if he is or not), just like with Beltran last year. It doesn't matter which team the player has played on with the Yanks.

I have a feeling that if Damon is talking about knowing the Yankees will come after him hard, he probably has inside information that you all don't even know exists. I mean, he is a pro player and a celebrity...he just MIGHT be a little more in tune to who will be going after him in the winter.


Either way, I love the guy whether he keeps playin in Boston, retires, or goes to new york.

But if your theory is that prominent Red Sox leave Boston for NY to win a WS, what incentive is it for Damon to wear the pin stripes?

The Pettitte/Clemens thing was just an example of how top FA just don't go to NY, but they sometimes leave.

There is no real loyalty in baseball anymore!

It wasn't really a complimnt. It was sarcasm.


And "son of a gun" is a figure of speech, Larry Literal.

Thanks for clearing that up. I was really confused as to why he thought my father was an inanimate object. I think I would of missed dinner just thinking about it. If you wouldn't mind going back to my other posts and helping me find other's, I believe you called it, sarcasm I'd appreciate it.

Thanks ;-D

I have come to the conclusion that most of the things that bother me about the Yankees (except the fur averse management...) are also present on the Bosox and, while I grew up being fond of Jim Rice, Dwight Evans et al...I've kind of lost interest. Maybe it was Nomar? I dunno.

It's not about a ring. It's just about going to the Yankees after being a prominent Red Sock. It's about being loved in Red Sox Nation, to being despised by them in the Empire.

I'm not saying top FA all go to New York. Obviously some leave. That has nothing to do with anything. The point is, if the Yankees really want someone, they usually get him, or at least get close. I'm not saying there is loyalty, but Damon's statement was "I can't go to the Yankees." Obviously he feels that he is a Red Sock, but we'll see how long that lasts once the Yankees start throwing money at him.
