Damon departing

Well, we didn't have to wait long to answer the question WWJD? (What Will Johnny Do?):

Yankees add Damon to potent lineup

I'd hoped that Damon's contract demands (for both years and money) would keep other teams from stealing him away, but I forgot about Steinbrenner's checkbook. It's going to be weird to see him next season -- in pinstripes, and without facial hair.

As for the Sox, I have to trust that the co-GMs will find somebody to fill the gap in center field and at leadoff. And shortstop. And first base. And spots in the bullpen ...

Sigh. Football, anyone?

Update: Call of the Green Monster has its own tongue-in-cheek take on the Damon debacle.
