Now that the Yankees and Johnny Damon are officially divorced, Damon’s agent Scott Boras has been acting up. Boras claimed Brian Cashman never made Damon a contract offer.
"I love Johnny," Cashman said. "I don't appreciate, obviously, Scott's representation of the events because we just had a different opinion, that's all. When I saw he said we never made an offer he knows that wasn't the case."
There’s no question who I trust more in this case. Cashman went on record saying he offered Damon a two-year, $14 million deal, but Boras wanted two years, $20 million.
Boras messed up in not accepting Cashman’s deal, and now he’s just whining about it.
It seems to me Boras is still hoping the Yankees are going to “finally” make an offer to Damon. But I doubt that’s going to happen.
