From Mark Feinsand:
Damon has been looking for a three-year deal in the $39 million range, and even though sources say that Scott Boras caved on the third year, the Yankees weren’t willing to give Damon the same $13 million salary he earned in each of the last four years.
I have a feeling that Damon and Boras are going to be doing a lot of “caving” in the next few weeks. I expect Johnny to end up somewhere near the deal Bobby Abreu got from the Angels, for 2 years and 19 million. At that price, I think it might be prudent for the Yankees to bring him back, but I am not sure if they would be willing now that Nick Johnson is in the fold. Damon could play LF this season and shift to DH next year. However, considering that Brian Cashman has recently fawned over the talent available on next year’s free agent market, he may just be content to bring in players like Johnson and Sheets on one year deals, and save the money for 2011.
