Damon's Future

Apparently Johnny Damon would like to return to the Yankees after the year. He doesn't see it happening though and thinks Austin Jackson may be a ML starter next year. While this may be true it doesn't mean Damon's gone. A quick glance ahead has Damon, Nady, and Matsui's contracts all running out after the year. Assuming Swisher and one of Melky/Gardner/Jackson take the rightfield and centerfield jobs. That still leaves DH and LF. I believe at least one of Damon/Nady/Matsui will be back after the year and whoever plays best will be an interesting storyline.
