  • Damon reports early to camp

    Hopefully, it's a good thing.

    Saturday and introduced himself to his new teammates.

    TAMPA, Fla. - Johnny Damon walked into the manager’s office, surprising Joe Torre, then circled the clubhouse, greeting his new teammates with a smile, handshakes and pats on the back.

    Damon is the new guy on the Yankees, taking over as center fielder and leadoff hitter. Even though the first workout for position players isn’t until Wednesday, he showed up early at Legends Field, wanting to “get off to a good start and say hi and kind of get things rolling.”

    So wearing a baseball cap backward and a tank top that showed off his bulging arms, he introduced himself to players he didn’t know and reacquainted himself with his former competitors.

    The image of Damon with Yankees is still a weird sight... :noidea

    Going to be weird seeing him in a Yankee uniform come the first Spring Training game and ever weirder on opening day.

      I know at some point I'm going to have to start to like him, and that strikes me as weird (and really, really bothers me).

          Seems like a fair trade.

            Damon's playing in the WBC, isn't he?
            "After my fourth season I asked for $43,000 and General Manager Ed Barrow told me, 'Young man, do you realize Lou Gehrig, a 16-year-man, is playing for only $44,000?' I said, Mr. Barrow, there is only one answer to that - Mr. Gehrig is terribly underpaid."- Yankees outfielder Joe DiMaggio

                At least he looks fit and in shape. Let's see if he's the "man on a mission" to prove that there's lots left in his tank.
