Damon: "My price is too high right now"

0 Comments

This just in: Johnny Damon is pessimistic about a return to the Yankees (from the New York Post, via Sporting News).

“I know I don’t fit their payroll,” Damon said. “We’ve had a little bit of communication with them, but my price is too high right now. I don’t think I’m their solution.”

Despite the Yankees’ signing of Nick Johnson, it’s conceivable that Damon could return to the Bronx. The Yankees can’t be comfortable with Brett Gardner as their everyday left fielder can they? If Damon just lowers his asking price, maybe something will get done. Even Damon seems to allude to that with his “my price is too high right now” comment.

I just hope someone signs him soon, because the world really doesn’t need any more of this. Ever.
