Joel Sherman play by play of Yankee-Damon denouement
- "However, as The Post reported today, Damon called the Yankees in the middle of last week, and Yankees executives floated a one-year, $6 million deal with $3 million deferred with no interest.
- The idea was that if Damon approved of that, Yankees officials would see if Hal Steinbrenner would relent and increase the budget specifically to keep Damon.
- But Damon never responded and the Yankees yesterday signed Randy Winn for $2 million, closing the door on Damon.
But Boras claims the door had been slammed in mid-December, saying “before they spoke to me they had moved down the road. No matter what I said, they had moved down the road.”"
