Johnny Damon to the Evil Empire


What a way to wake up this morning. I had an offline message from a Yankees fan telling me the bad news. Johnny Damon is going to sign a 4 year $52 million contract with the New York Yankees.

The freaking Yankees are you kidding me. The Yanks hadn't done a thing on the free agent front all off season and then I have to wake up to this crap. Steinbrenner had been complaining the whole time about having to pay so much in luxury tax and now he adds another $13 million a year to his team. And what the frig are the Red Sox thinking. How can they just sit back and let this happen? The Sox had offered Damon a 4 yr $40 million dollar contract. That's only $8 million more over the life of his last contract. Johnny definitely deserved a lot more money from the Sox than a 4 yr $40 million dollar contract. If Theo was still GM of the Red Sox would this have happened. Or maybe just maybe a new curse has started, the Curse of Theo.

So lets compare the Sox to the Yanks by position:

Well now, I have to sit back and watch the rest of the offseason because the Sox really need to do something dramatic again. Otherwises, it's going to be a long season in Red Sox Nation. And oh yes get used to it Damon fans. The caveman is no more. He will have to shave his beard and cut his hair and go back to looking like something in this picture.
