Could Johnny Damon come back to haunt the Yankees as a member of the Red Sox?

According to Several sources, the Boston Red Sox have claimed Johnny Damon on waivers. It remains to be seen whether the Red Sox and Tigers can work out a deal, or if Detroit will simply let Damon go in a salary dump, but if the prodigal son of Red Sox Nation does return to Boston, the final two weekends of the season will be that much more interesting.

Of course, Damon must also waive his no trade clause in order to make the reunion possible, and based on some of his comments, that might not be a given. Apparently, Damon has grown tired of being a baseball nomad (which, incidentally, is the backwards spelling of his last name).

I had a great time playing there. But I think once it was apparent that I wasn’t a necessity to re-sign there, it started to get ugly. And that’s why I’ve got to think long and hard. I have to think if they do have a strong chance to make the playoffs with the guys beat up there. I have to think long and hard if I’m going to once again be probably one of the nicest guys in baseball, but be once again the most hated guy in baseball. That’s what it boils down. You guys see how I get booed in every ballpark already.” – Johnny Damon, as quoted on ESPN.com

One place Johnny Damon wasn’t booed this season was at Yankees Stadium. During last week’s return to the Bronx, Damon was greeted with a standing ovation in his first at bat. If Damon does wind up back in Boston, however, that reception could be a lot different during the weekend of September 24 when the Red Sox make their final trip to the Bronx.

As much as Yankees fans would like to avoid seeing Damon return to the Stadium with Boston written across his chest, no one has more to lose from the reunion than GM Brian Cashman. During last week’s series against the Tigers, Damon commented about how the difference between the two rivals has been the Yankees always pay their own players, before noting that he was the one exception. Well, if traded to Boston, Damon would have the perfect opportunity to make Cashman regret that decision.
