Looks like Damon is pricing himself out of a job so far. I believe he's a Boras guy? Even Scott Boras can't over-hype and sell Damon. Dude is a DH at best who hit 20+ bombs in a yard with a wicked jet stream to right field. That's NOT going to translate to consistant power at many other ML parks. Good hitter, but evenHE has to know he's not gonna get long money as a marginal outfielder with NO arm and limited power.

Damon DID have a very good year, which was smart in a contract year, and would NEVER go backwards and play for the $2 million they had. If he had played poorly maybe, but he had a really good year.

He had a good year in a band box where moderately hit baseballs leave the yard in right field. He needs 2 cutoff men to reach the plate from left field and the Yanks are loaded again for this year. I'm not taking away what he did last year because he's still a viable major leaguer (DH)but nowhere nearlast year's money.

So that means the Yanks get Wynn and we negotiate a billion dollars for Damon, sounds about right.:%:%
