He's 32 and has a terrible arm. The Yanks should be alot more concerned with defense than offense at this point in time. They don't need a leadoff hitter; they don't need Damon.
Who are other options? Preston Wilson and Jacque Jones are free agents, and there's been talk about trading for Pierre, Andruw Jones or Torii Hunter. I would like to get Hunter, but I doubt the Yanks have the pieces to accquire him.
Who DO you see patrolling CF for the Yanks next season, and who would you WANT to see?

Hunter is a very good glove, pretty mediocre at best hitter who without turf I suspect would turn into a very mediocre to below avg hitter. He is not a great hitter now and really has only had 1.5 good seasons. Hunter is after all a 267 lifetime hitter. with a 779 OPS and 321 OBP. Those are NOT good numbers.
J Jones I suspect would turn into Eric Byrnes out of Minnesota. I do not think either is worth bothering with. The latter is not that good and the former would end up being our Beltran in NY.

The Big Stick wrote:Yes your right but, it looks like Matsui is comming back. Giles can play left. The last thing I want to see with Damon in center field in Yankee pinstripes. I rather see Crosby.
