If the Yankees' potentially existent deadline is to be believed, we'll know this week if Johnny Damon will be back in pinstripes or not. Brian Cashman, for what it's worth, still says he's working within a budget, meaning he can only offer $2 million for a left-fielder. And Oakland is reportedly in the mix now, too, though only if they don't sign Ben Sheets. As for why Damon's still seeking a team, we direct you to this SI.com piece, which blames it on his age, the glut of comparable players on this year's market, and his world-class bad throwing arm.
