what happen to this guy? I'm thinking he ran into 1 wall too many.

I'd like for him to come back but he's been talking out his arse lately.

"...You need someone who can put people in the seats and I'm the kind of guy who can do that. I'm looking for five plus (years). I'm looking for a lot. For what I bring to the table night in and night in. We know how good Manny and David are, but I also help them look real good. They make me look real good."

yeah, I think this one is going the route of Pedro. I don't think Damon will be back and someone will give him the years he wants (again see Pedro). I guess the next question is, who will play CF and who will bat leadoff, I don't think it will be the same person.

The Cubs or Yanks might get involved but I can't see either of them giving him 5 years. I think he will resign with the Sox.

I could easily see him in Chicago or NY at three or four years regardless of the money, but I don't think even the Yankees will give him five. If he does end up getting five, I don't think it will be with a team that is anywhere close to being a contender, though it seems that some teams are starting to wise up to that. :-? Sould be one of the more interesting stories of the winter though.

The Yankees will overpay a long contract to Damon--yet another of the OF on the downslide.

You know what, screw Damon. He is now the official MHY (Most Hated Yankee), taking that position over from the other 2 primadonnas that will be at the top of NY's order.

Updated MHY standings:
1. Johnny Damon
2. Jeter
2a. A-Rod
3. Joe Dimaggio

Read this on Bill Simmons' SportsGuy site at ESPN.com's Page 2. It's from Simmons' mailbag:




"Johnny Damon: looks like Jesus, throws like Mary, and betrays like Judas ... "

Do you have any good reason for calling Jeter a primadonna or is it just because he's the Yankee captain and has 4 rings?

And you have a Most Hated Yankee list? 8-o :-°
