A little history, from the YFSF Archives. No finger pointing, no editorializing, just some comments pulled from some recent threads. I tried my best to pull relevant comments, and objectively, I didn’t spare myself. Upon searching, it was clear that my cohort YF was conspicuously absent from any debate about a possible Damon acquisition, which some could call intelligent positioning. I, however, might be more cynical, and call it something else.
All sides represented. In the interest of history. See it all after the jump.
I personally am confused why Damon is the answer to the Sox’ PR woes. Most knowledgable Sox fans watched Damon play in the second half of last year and also know his age. Not giving him a 5/50M contract would be a better PR move than signing him to a ridiculous deal at any cost, just to get it done.
