Damon Next Yankee To Go

New, 11 comments
The Yankees were trying to trade Johnny Damon all season, but with no suitors found at the deadline, the Yankees are set on show-casing him for the rest of the season and then dumping him to a team for prospects. Damon has not been the same player since he left the Red Sox, and although he had a decent first year with the Yankees, he is now batting .251 with 6 HR. Teams will probably look at Damon as a fallback option after missing out on players like Jermaine Dye, Kosuke Fokudome, and Torii Hunter.
