Damon’s going to the Yankees. It’s been a great four years with him on the Red Sox, and though it’s sad to see him go, it’s hard to begrudge him the 30 pieces of silver. But will that extra dough cover all the haircuts? (Maybe Samson will be a better comp!) :)
I wish I could say that this contract will cripple the Yankees, but it won’t. Damon’s still a good player, and according to WARP is currently worth his contract. Chances are just as good that he will age like Kenny Lofton (a better comp IMHO) as Bernie Williams. He’ll likely remain good enough that he will only be a little overpaid and won’t be a large liability in the field.
Update: Wok’s take
