Johnny Damon Rumor Update: Torre Puts in a Call…
Wednesday, December 14, 2005
Start shaving, Johnny...

Hold on to your hats and glasses, kids, Joe Torre has made a call to the Damon camp.

Newsday is reporting today that Joe Torre had contacted Mr. “I’m thirty-two but demand a seven-year contract” Damon. He and his wrangler/agent Scott Boras have been unyielding on their quest for a seven-year $84 million contract despite getting no takers thus far. The Sox have offered him a three year deal, and both the Yankees and the Dodgers have expressed interest in him for three or four years, but Boras has made it clear that he and his client will not consider anything less than a five-year deal.

The current rumor is that the Yankees will offer Damon a hefty four-year deal, possibly with incentives or a fifth year option. Johnny is off to L.A. this weekend to meet with the Dodgers, so depending on what – if any – offer the Dodgers make, Cashman and Torre may need to be prepared to up the ante.

With Bradley and Juan Pierre out of the running, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Yankees ended up springing for Damon, even if it means offering a larger deal than they’d like.

    It's just money. Why not toss out four year deal worth about $60 million? Doesn't Steinbrenner control one of the US Mints there in New York? :)

    There's this Red Sox hating part of me that despises all things Boston, and nothing seems more Boston to me than Johnny Damon's ugly mug...

    On the other hand he is a career .290 hitter, who has actually shown improvement as a hitter in the last two years despite his age. He's a plus range guy in center field, despite being a serious minus-arm guy. If Johnny is coming to town we're going to need to teach Hideki how to get into short the cut-off path to get Johnny's throws in towards A-Rod and Derek.

    I'm all for it...if he shaves and gets a haircut. We can't have people looking like they're homeless on the same team as A-Rod and Derek.
