Posts Tagged ‘Aubrey Huff’

Joel Sherman of the New York Post finds that Johnny Damon returning to the Bronx is unlikely, because the Yankees  are telling agents they have only $2M to spend.  Cashman would have to lobby Hal Steinbrenner to expand the budget to bring back Damon. Supposedly, when they were targeting Mike Cameron back in July, Hal Steinbrenner would not approve a $5.5MM increase. Damon would have to cut his salary demands by a lot, and that is unlikely. If this report is correct, $2M isn’t going to get you anything noteworthy on this FA market.

If they move on from Damon, the team’s next targets are: Xavier Nady, Reed Johnson, Rocco Baldelli, Jerry Hairston Jr., and Marcus Thames.

According to Chris Haft of MLB.com, the “signing of first baseman Aubrey Huff likely finishes the Giants’ offseason efforts to upgrade the ballclub.” So, that means no Damon for the Giants? Isn’t this guy running out of options?
