HCJDDI?.....How Could Johnny Damon Do It?
To ring in the new year, I have to comment on the continuing drama that is the Yankees vs. the Red Sox. I have to admit to being at least a little annoyed at Mr. Johnny Damon for loosing the beard so easily and sliding over to the "dark side" just so he can make a few extra bucks. But thinking about it, I honestly can't to come up with a reason why he shouldn't. I mean, in reality, he's just an employee looking to make the most money he can under the best conditions. When I grow up, I too hope to switch jobs as often as a better one comes around. Though I don't know why anyone would WANT to play in New York under that magnifying glass, I'm not convinced we should begrudge the guy a few extra bucks and a haircut if that's what he wants.
So given this, can anyone make me a good argument why ballplayers should owe any sort of loyalty to their fans?
