Here’s a name we haven’t talked about yet: Johnny Damon. I think he hasn’t come up much because his contract makes him nearly immovable. He’ll make $13MM annually through 2009 and has a partial no-trade clause.
Nonetheless, Dan Graziano of the Newark Star-Ledger reports that the Yankees have been calling around to see if anyone’s interested in Damon. The Braves have a touch of interest, but obviously there are many obstacles. I imagine the Yankees are stuck with Damon. Hey, it seemed like a good idea at the time.
