I can understand Damon as a sell high, slightly, but he will continue to benefit from hitting in a little league park so I don't see how that can be the main reason to trade him. Is he playing the rest of his home games somewhere else? The Yankees have played 5 more games on the road than at home so far so let the floodgates stay open for Yankee hitters benefitting from that park. Also, I think the drop in power that you might expect (although I could see him ending up with 27-30HR thanks to that park and the lineup protection) will be made up some by a slight uptick in SB. I have Jeter, Damon, and Arod on my team and I can't wait to see what these guys can do at home when the air is hot and humid. Look out!

One more thing, sit Damon vs lefties on the road and you will love what you get out of him.

Understood, but normally when I write my "three I'm buying/selling" segment, it doesn't necessarily mean that any of the players in question are perfect buy low/sell high players, rather to give you an idea of players I'd think of selling for upgrades that you wouldn't have otherwise gotten months ago. In Damon's case, the ballpark factor and the move into warmer climes are good reasons for hanging on to him. However, if I can sell anyone on the idea he's on pace for a 30/30 season and get some very nice value out of him for a top-line player who produces the stats I need, I'd go for it. I'm still a bit skeptical he'll achieve 30/30, but I also wouldn't deal him if the deal didn't floor me either. After all, I did say in the preseason he was going to be undervalued and would put up nice numbers for the value. Besides, it's tricky to come up with three players every week to be called on as possible trade bait. :-b :-B
