Johnny Damon and Scott Boras may have overplayed their hand in contract negotiations with the New York Yankees, while the team was inflexible with a player who was a key part of their 2009 World Series championship. But Damon doesn't deserve to be without a chair when the music stops.
Boras can talk all he wants about still being in negotiations with several baseball teams for Damon's services. But it's February 6 and the list of teams with available outfield spots is dwindling with the start of spring training less than two weeks away. I hope Damon finds a job soon. It won't be for the money and years he wanted, but it's better than being unemployed.
