Here are a few quick items on the evening:
The guys over at Pinstripe Alley have a nice Q&A out with Fanhouse’s own, Frankie Piliere. Brian Cashman on Hideki Matsui: “Hideki Matsui will be one of the best deals I ever made.” Joe at River Ave Blues takes a look at [...]
Could Johnny Damon end up playing for Jim Leyland?
From Lynn Henning of the Detroit News:
Johnny Damon, the free-agent outfielder who helped the Yankees to a world championship in 2009, would be happy to talk with the Tigers.
“Johnny believes the addition of him to Detroit’s lineup would make the Tigers a [...]

Buster Olney has an interesting account of the Johnny Damon negotiations that I am inclined to believe. He suggests that Damon was the Yankees’ Plan A in left and at the 2 slot in the lineup, but simply kept rejecting offers that were commensurate to his [...]
Joel Sherman of the NY Post recaps posted an article last night that recaps what went down and what went wrong between the Yankees and the Damon/Boras camp in trying to get a deal done. He writes:
Both camps played the semantic game. Scott Boras, Damon’s agent, said yesterday [...]
Here are a few quick yet notable items on the day:
Check out Frankie Piliere’s extended take on the ambidextrous prospect, Pat Venditte. Curtis Granderson is open to playing left field and Joe Girardi seems willing to put him there. According to Ken Davidoff, the A’s have actually sent Damon [...]
According to a report via ESPN, “a baseball source told ESPN.com’s Jerry Crasnick” that “[Scott] Boras and [Johnny] Damon are trying to engage the Detroit Tigers and Cincinnati Reds as possible alternatives” to the Yankees. Though the Tigers-Damon connection is not new – Jon Heyman of Sports Illustrated offered the possible marriage [...]
The common line is that right now, the Yankees have about 2 million dollars left in their budget for the 2010 season. I think that this is entirely plausible. Hal Steinnerbrenner gave Brian Cashman a hard number, and said that he would have to approve any spending over that number. He did so last year [...]
Another day, another non-story about Johnny Damon.
While I’ve been very pleased with Yankeeist’s output (big ups to Mike and Jason), it’s been a bit of a challenge to come up with content given that the Yankees haven’t done anything for over a month since trading for Vazquez, and [...]
Yankee GM Brian Cashman had a conference call yesterday with members of the media where he all but closed the book on Johnny Damon. Brian Hoch of MLB.com has the story:
NEW YORK — Johnny Damon was hoping to find his team by the end of this week, and [...]
According to Yahoo! Sports’ Tim Brown, the Chicago Cubs have signed former Yankee, Xavier Nady, to a one-year deal. He will likely serve as outfield insurance but will also be a right-handed platoon option, spelling Kosuke Fukudome against left-handers.
How does this affect the Yankees’ pursuit of a right-handed bat? Well, the Yankees [...]
