Damon is just way too much money at his age (by the end of the contract), but you can expect they'll at least bid the price up for Boston.
I agree. The problem is that Damon will be looking for a 5 year deal. I think that the Yankees (specifically Cashman, if he is still the GM) are feeling burnt by old players at the tail end of the contracts. The only thing that they MAY do is inquire if the Marlins are going to take Pierre to arbitration. If not, then they may make a play for him.
BTW, looks like I am coming out on the wrond side of both of our bets.
I don't think Pierre is the answer either
His OBP sucks, he'll be overpaid and his arm is Bernie-esque
I could deal with a bad OBP and no power if he had a good arm and didn't cost so much more than he's worth.
And the bets...
