Forget to mention this before. Johnny Damon was named the AL Player of the Week. This from the MLB release:
In seven games last week, Damon led the Majors with five home runs, 15 RBI and 32 total bases, hitting .419 (13-31). Johnny posted A.L.-best totals with 13 hits and a 1.032 slugging percentage. He also collected four doubles, seven runs and a .455 on-base percentage. Yesterday, Johnny hit a three-run go-ahead homer in the seventh inning of an A.L. East matchup at Baltimore’s Camden Yards.
The game-winning home run was his ninth long ball of the season and his fifth in seven games while also marking his seventh straight game with at least one extra-base hit. This marks Johnny’s second career weekly award (previous: 8/21/2006).
You know what is interesting? Johnny is at .288/.363/.459 with an OPS+ of 114 as a Yankee. He was .295/.362/.441 with a 108 for the Red Sox.
He’ll be an interesting free agent because he can still play. His defense in left is pretty good, too.
