“All that personality and the lighthearted comments? How about hitting .350? How about October? If he doesn’t help us win a championship, he’ll be at the Laugh House in the meatpacking district on open-mike night, and it will be, ‘Here’s Johnny,’ and then Cashman will come out and say, ‘Johnny’s gone’...And we’ll bring in a new comedian.”

Reggie Jackson, on Johnny Damon, as quoted in a New York Magazine article. Way to welcome the new guy!

  1. Interesting comments. I guess I agree about the championships thing, but we haven't seen him throw Giambi or A-rod under the bus.

    I enjoyed the part about hitting .350. I don't recall Reggie hitting for .350 In fact, if my memory serves me correctly he is the only HOF to NEVER have batted above .300 in a single season.
