Joel Sherman of the Post and Mark Feinsand of the Daily News have reports relating to Johnny Damon. He spoke to both about his current situation:

I am going to start looking around. Teams are getting better and there are teams interested, Damon told The Post yesterday. I cant wait forever and I am sure [the Yankees] are trying to figure things out. I have to be ready.

"Players out there are getting multi-year deals," Damon said. "(Andy) Pettitte got a raise at 37, even though it was only one year. Cameron is 37 (he turns 37 in January) and he got two years. We're not going to know much until we start negotiating with teams, but that should happen soon."

This seems like fairly normal talk when it comes to free agents. Buster Olney says that Damon "indicated through a conduit to team that he doesn't want the Yankees to make an offer if it's for less than $13 million per.

Meanwhile, Feinsand says that the Yankees appear to be good with an offer of 2 years, $19 million total, which matches what Bobby Abreu received from the Angels. But, another source, he says, will give him an offer of $22 million for 2 years with a third year option that includes a buyout that would bring it to approximately $26 million total for the 2 years, if it was exercised.
