Somebody Please Sign Johnny Damon

First off, I am not a Johnny Damon fan. That doesn't mean I dislike him, I just don't particularly find myself rooting for the guy. However, it would be a shame if he doesn't land a starting gig somewhere. Yes, he's getting old, but remains quite capable. I see him as an American League guy that can be plugged in leftfield and DH. Just last season he batted .282 with a .854 OPS with the Yankees. That's a great deal better than the average leftfielder. He's now 36 years old, but his bat is obviously still very productive and he still has plus speed. We're talking about a potential Hall of Famer if given 4 more quality seasons, because that would likely bring him to the magical 3000 hit club (currently at 2425). I understand his asking price and possibly years is out of range for some clubs, but for him to fall by the wayside would just be wrong. Somebody please sign Johnny Damon!

Agreed, Carson. He's too good to just be cast aside.

Johnny Damon is so last decade. He's like an aging Rock Star now - he will end up playing the County Fair circuit soon, IMO.

He's an oldie, but a goody.
