A clean-shaven and short-haired Johnny Damon finally gives the Yankees a strong arm in center field again and as well as a quick bat behind the plate.
The Yankees are spending $52 million over four years to fill the weakest niche in their lineup and even in today’s sport economy that is a bargain price.
It’s a giddy feeling having a Yankees-killer become a Yankee and I only find it slightly homoerotic that I am still peeing my pants with glee over this signing as we once again give the Red Sox a shiv and the ole one-two!
I think I’m the only one in the blogging world right now.
Oh and he still looks a little shady to me and that has nothing to do with being a Sox fan but I suppose that has little to do with playing baseball.
Yes, it’s a quiet day for blogging, Robin. Everyone else is still eating sugar plums.
I realize loyalty to a bank account instead of a hometown team is a sad reality in today’s sport world. Damon and Giambi used to play in Oakland together so they’re both excited to be playing on the same team again. A-Rod, Jeter, Giambi, Damon — it’s an excellent lineup!
Well either way I’m certainly not going to lose sleep over it…I just hear about this everywhere I go.
Back to the sugar plums!
I’m with you on that one, soos.
A team is only as good as much as its owner wants to spend in money and manpower!
With all that money and men the Yankees should have won every game and every World Series for the past 5 years.
We’ll see if they can overcome the A-Rod curse this year.
“The Curse of the A-Rod” — something no man and no money can defend, resolve or purchase — that will be an all-new statistic to watch unfold over the season, soos!
I am with you all the way. Go Yankees!
