Wondering why former Yankee Johnny Damon doesn't have a job yet? It may be because of his pursuit of 3,000 hits, according to Joel Sherman of the NY Post. Apparently executives from at least three teams have told Sherman that they are concerned he is too fixed on 3,000 and is sacrificing his typical solid, patient ...
The Yankees signed Russell Branyan to a minor league contract as a possible DH option yesterday, but they are still in the market for another option. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports tweeted that they are still considering Raul Ibanez and Johnny Damon for the position and supposedly are leaning toward Ibanez because of his glove. The Yankees ...
The Yankees just signed Bill Hall and supposedly only have $2 million to spend, but that they don't still have big plans for the rest of this offseason. Joel Sherman of the NY Post has reported that the Yankees are "quietly, but diligently" trying to trade A.J. Burnett with the idea that they could use the ...
The Yankees want to complete a deal for a left handed hitting DH, but insist that they only have up to $2 million to spend and that prices are still too high, according to Joel Sherman of the NY Post. Sherman reports that the Yankees signing of Hiroki Kuroda has already put them over budget so ...
The Yankees may not be on the search for a DH for much longer as Buster Olney of ESPN tweets that they are in position to add one of three hitters, Raul Ibanez, Johnny Damon, or Hideki Matsui, within the next week. We're getting awfully close to spring training so Olney's tweet is far from huge ...
The Yankees have denied interest in Johnny Damon, perhaps it is because of his asking price, but according to Jim Bowden of ESPN XM Radio, they are one of four teams that are still in play for the veteran outfielder. The thing is that the Yankees don't have a lot of money to spend on the ...
Wondering why the Yankees haven't been interested in either Vladimir Guerrero or Johnny Damon to fill their vacant DH spot? It seems to have something to do with their asking prices. Despite the fact that it's a buyers market with a glutton of DH-types still available, Damon and Guerrero are holding out for $5 million each, ...
Now that the Yankees have made the Michael Pineda trade official they can now address replacing Jesus Montero as the team's DH. Joel Sherman of the NY Post outlined exactly how the Yankees plan on replacing him this offseason. It involves trying to trade pitching, specifically A.J. Burnett, either straight up for a DH-type or for ...
Johnny Damon never wanted to leave the Yankees after the 2009 season, but lost a financial game of chicken to GM Brian Cashman. Now that the Yankees have an opening at DH, Damon is said to badly want to return to the Bronx, according to Joel Sherman of the NY Post. There are two problems preventing ...
Ever since the Yankees traded away Jesus Montero, their expected DH, they have been in contact with Johnny Damon, Hideki Matsui, Vladimir Guerrero, and Raul Ibanez. The Yankees don't sound too interested though as Bob Klapisch of the Bergen Record reports, all discussions have gone one way with agents representing the players initiating all of the ...
