The Buzz: Damon, Baldelli

Olney predicts Yankee, Damon reunion
Buster Olney says in a video blog, that he feels Damon will end up in New York because “he’s running out of other options.” He mentions that the Braves, Giants, and Tigers have pulled out of the race, making the Yankees chances even greater for obtaining Damon. He says that two things would have to happen, one being that “Damon would have to greatly reduce his salary demands,” and the other being that “Hal Steinbrenner would have to essentially rewrite his budget.” He adds that sources tell him that Hal is unlikely to do that, although many team executives say that they think Damon will end up in New York.

Balldeli never signed, although is still an option
Anthony DiComo says via the Hot Stove Blog that a report yesterday about Baldelli signing with  the Yankees was incorrect, according to Brian Cashman. He adds that the Yankees are still very interested in Baldelli, should Damon not work out.
