Johnny Damon : Why we need him - poll


Why aren't we talking about Johnny Damon instead of Scott Podshotwifenick.  Johnny should be our everyday LF and this would actually be a HUGE improvement over the current Heisey/Gomes situation. 

4-6 million 1 yr deal for a winner with a great OBP and great hair.  Damon + Gomes = best outfield hair in baseball.  (Could only be improved by Swisher)

His numbers might also see a bump from playing in the NL.  600+ plate appearances in each of the last 12 years.  


Bill James projections :

Johnny Damon 271/.352/.407 2.0 WAR

Pods is a limp wristed .277/.335/.365 0.4WAR

Heisey .275/.336/.478 and 1.3 WAR.........albeit with significantly less plate appearances, but projecting youth has a very large amount of error in the projection

Gomes .259/.339/.465 with a negative value because of his oafiness in the field. 

If all this sounds familiar, I was basically beating the same drum last year.
