“I am going to start looking around. Teams are getting better and there are teams interested,” Damon told The Post yesterday. “I can’t wait forever and I am sure [the Yankees] are trying to figure things out. I have to be ready.”
Well, I guess the honeymoon is officially over.
As I have said numerous times before, LET THAT ASSHOLE-LICKER GO!!!! I’ll never forget his contributions to the Yanks over the past four seasons (especially the whole World Series thing) and I wish him well, but this is how I will always remember Johnny Damon:
I would love it if Damon signed a two-year deal and came back to the Bronx, but it’s foolish for the Yanks to give him more than two years. He throws like a girl and is a defensive liability. Plus he’s 36. The Yanks might miss his bat, but Granderson will be able to fill his spot in the lineup.
I blame, as always, his agent Scott Boras. He’s bad for the game and is the baseball equivalent of Drew Rosenhaus. Forget him and Damon, the Yanks will make it 28 next year with or without The Caveman.

It’s official, Matsui’s on the Angels. So long and good luck over there Godzilla, you couldn’t have gone out on a better note. We’ll all miss you…but we’ll still get to see you 10-or-so times a season.
