12/18: Davidoff: Damon Wanted 2 Years, $22 Million; Yankees Said No
Newsday's Ken Davidoff reports
that the "last number the Yankees floated" to the Damon camp was 2 years, $14 million. Agent Scott Boras insisted upon the 2 year, $26 million dollars that has been reported previously. Davidoff says that Damon
offered the team 2 years, $22 million, but they said no.
FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal says both sides need to come together
: in so many words, the Damon camp needs value him more in line with the market and the Yankees should spend because they can.
