Damon Makes a Good Point

Both the Post and the Daily News had articles on Johnny Damon today, as he was at the Empire State Building doing something that had to do with racing which I'm sure none of you care about. Both articles pretty much have the same quotes, but there is one worth paying attention to. That is Damon's mentioning of the fact that while a Yankee he helped recruit free agents to New York such as CC Sabathia and AJ Burnett.

Damon has not only been a positive presence in the clubhouse, but he's also reached out to a number of Yankee targets during his time here, helping to lure them in. Not to say that Damon is the sole reason any of those players came to New York, but I think it has to be taken into consideration as far as bringing him back is concerned (assuming the price is reasonable).
