Damon praises young Yankee pitchers on Thailand trip--AP

"Johnny Damon said Tuesday that his New York Yankees have a good shot at making the playoffs next season, despite a young pitching staff.
  • Speaking on a visit to Bangkok, the Thai-American centerfielder said once the Bronx Bombers make the playoffs "anything can definitely happen."

"We're kind of in a strange situation right now. We're going with a lot of young pitchers but they're good young pitchers," Damon said. "They keep the club house fun and that's what we need. And I think we're going to do real good. I think we're going to compete for a playoff spot."

  • Damon, whose mother is Thai, spent the day visiting an orphanage as part of a U.S. Embassy-sponsored trip."
From AP report, International Herald Tribune, "Yankees Damon says the Team has a Good Chance of Making Playoffs Next Year," 11/27/07. Filed from Bangkok, Thailand.
