Yankees Yet To Make Offer To Johnny Damon

Johnny Damon told George A. King III of the New York Post that he has yet to receive a proposal from the Yankees.  On top of that, Damon has yet to tell the club what he wants out of a contract.

It seems as though his agent, Scott Boras, is focused on securing a three or four-year deal for his client.  Most recently, we heard that the Giants have thrown themselves in the mix for the 36-year-old slugger.  In 2009, Damon delivered a slash line of .282/.365/.489 with 24 HRs. 

Despite his advanced age, Damon has played in upwards of 140 games every season of his career, excluding his rookie campaign.  With that in mind, would you be willing to give Damon more than two years?  Does it make sense to match his $13MM salary in '09?  Let's hear your thoughts in the comments section.
