Klap offers up a Hot or Not column…Please help keep this thread FUN, CLEAN, and REAL!
HOT: Johnny Damon. He should turn the Yankees into a 900-run machine this summer, bringing along an easygoing, neurosis-free personality that fans will love. Still, this is a strange fit – sort of like Ozzie Osborne joining the Republican National Committee. Interesting to see if Damon will still be a stand-up guy in the clubhouse, as quotable and honest as he was in Boston. Jason Giambi was once that type of player, but was no match for the corporate pressure he faced as a Yankee.
NOT: Theo Epstein. The Red Sox’ on-again, off-again GM appears to have won his power struggle with Larry Lucchino, but a three-month pout made Epstein seem even more indecisive than Alex Rodriguez. Epstein’s peers were initially impressed by his willingness to walk away from a fractured front office and expected him to hold out for the Nationals job. But returning to Boston has diminished Epstein’s image as a man of principle.
