From Andrew Marchand:With Curtis Granderson out until May, ex-New York Yankee Johnny Damon has a message for his former team -- give me a call. Speaking on ESPN New York 98.7 FM's Michael Kay Show, Damon said he is willing to play just the five or so weeks of the regular season that Granderson will miss and he even would take a league-minimum contract to return to the Bronx. "You guys know that I would have tons of interest to go to New York," Damon told Kay and co-host Don LaGreca. "But I just don't think they would be interested. I'm not exactly sure what happened over the years or something. They have had plenty of opportunities and I kept raising my hand, wanting to go back and, you know, hopefully it would be a perfect fit. It always had been. Have me for six weeks and then send me off on my merry way. That's fine." .... Damon said he doesn't plan on picking up the phone and calling Cashman. "I know how the New York media works," Damon said. "I'm talking to you so I'm sure he'll hear about it tomorrow." ... "Absolutely," Damon said. "Losing a Curtis Granderson is a tough thing to swallow, but the way I hit at Yankee Stadium and the right field porch, I mean, it worked when I played for them. We'll just keep doing what we are doing, staying in shape, continuing playing soccer, continue to live my life. If they want to see what I can do, then I'll definitely be interested. "I hope they have interest but it seems like they haven't the past couple of years. I don't know why things would change now."I don't think that he'll add much at this point in his career, and Brain Cashman apparently agrees because he's already killed any chance of it happening.
