AL BEast Notebook – Feb 26
Johnny Damon was on The Michael Kay Show on ESPN New York on Monday, and immediately the conversation began with the Curtis Granderson injury and the new vacancy in the outfield.
First question from Michael Kay: “Do you have any interest in going to the Yankees?”
“You guys know that I would have tons of interest to go to New York… Hopefully it would be a perfect fit. It always has been. Have me for six weeks and then send me off on my merry way. That’s fine.”
Don La Greca: “You think you could come here and be successful? You feel comfortable that you could step right back in with Granderson out?”
“Oh absolutely. Losing Curtis Granderson is definitely a tough thing to swallow, but with the way I hit at Yankee Stadium and with the right field porch, it worked when I played with them… If they want to see what I can do, then I’ll definitely be interested… I hope they have interest.”
Kay: You would be okay with coming in until Curtis could come back?
