On December 20, 2005 Johnny Damon told the Boston Red Sox thanks but money was more important than being loyal. And to make matters worse he signed with Boston's arch rival. He not only stabbed every Red Sox fan in the back but he twisted it and poured salt on the wound. Flash to present day when Johnny Damon is complaing that the Yankees are not interested in resigning him. He is mad that they don't want to pay him $13 million to be a backup outfielder. He sites that he has been on the team since 2005. He claims he wants to come back but only with a four year deal. He doesn't seem to understand that when the Yankees signed Randy Wynn that his time with the Yankees is done. I just find the irony delicious. Damon is asking the Yankees to be loyal but he doesn't know the meaning of loyalty. I admire the Yankees for standing firm. Of course its surprising to see that Damon is a Scott Boras client. Loyalty to Boras means $$$$$. And for once the Yankees aren't overpaying for a player.
