Did anyone see the interview of him on MLB Network? Harold Reynolds asked hm why he thinks the Yankees didn't resign him. Talk about awkward. Essentially said the Yankess were listening to rumors about him and that lead to lack of or breakdown in communication. Clearly he did not want to get into details and eneded by saying he hoped he didn't have to rehash that again. Reynolds and company felt the Yankees were passing on Damon not just for money but also to help the defense.
