From the article:

"Damon had an MRI exam. His sore left shoulder is the same one that hindered him late last year with Boston and weakened an already inferior throwing arm."

Who'd have guessed this would happen?

Aside from the Red Sox front office, I mean.

This is why Steinbrenner was against any of his players competing in the WBC. I can't wait until May or June when he complains how Johnny Damon isn't worth the $52 million. Damon was never worth that much dough, period. He's a fine player, but definitely not among the elites in the league. But, money is never an object to 'Ol Georgie and never hesitates to overpay a player when several other teams are after him. The fact that Damon played for the archrival Red Sox was a bonus in this case.

Absolutely. Hey, I wanted Damon back in Red Sox, but not for what he was looking for. I, along with most of "The Nation", was happy that the Sox didn't cave in by giving Johnny a ridiculous contract (heck, I thought their initial offer was too high).

Folks not following the Sox might not have known about his shoulder acting up for the better part of the second half of the season - but we did. And that, coupled with his age, made most of us pretty sure he wasn't worth throwing everything including the kitchen sink at him.

Old George, on the other hand, saw an opportunity to once again overpay for a 'superstar' AND stick it to the Sox.

Schadenfreude. It's what's for dinner.
