Yankees and Damon Reach “Preliminary Agreement”: Color Me Surprised!
Tuesday, December 20, 2005
Next stop: the Bronx! nonstop train, say your goodbyes!

The deal is still not official and has yet to be confirmed, but according to the AP, the Yankees and Johnny Damon have come to terms on a preliminary contract. Damon’s arbitration deadline with the sox isn’t till January eighth, and it was looking like the Yankees wouldn’t make a serious move on Damon (not that kind of move, settle down) until he was officially through with Boston. The Yanks surprised us all by swooping in and snatching Damon up from under Boston's nose.

As I said, the deal is still being negotiated and Damon will still have to pass the obligatory “do you use steroids” physical. The preliminary contract will net Damon a sweet fifty-two million dollars and will secure his place in the Bronx for the next four years. Agent Scott Boras' original asking price of seven years/eighty-four million dollars this year really put me off; I really didn't think he end up signing with any team other than the Sox. Four years for fifty-two million dollars is certainly nothing to sneeze at, but I have to say I'm somewhat surprised that Boras "settled" for less than five or six years.

I hope Damon is enjoying his last few moments with long hair and scruffy facial hair…the Yanks won’t be having any of that! Perhaps Bubba Crosby can do it for him; he may be in need of a job...
