Johnny Damon and GM Brian Cashman met for about 10 minutes behind the batting cage yesterday, their first face-to-face since Damon’s contentious divorce from the Yankees.
Both men refused to divulge the content of the conversation. But both expressed appreciation that they were able to talk. During the conversation, each appeared amiable — often smiling — and the two parted with a hug.
“I just hope what is remembered is that I was proud to bring him here and that he was a huge part of how the roster was built, how the team played and succeeded, and how the clubhouse came together,” Cashman said. “He’s a great guy. I am glad we had a chance to visit.”
“Everything is good now,” Damon said. “No problems.”
For what it’s worth, I thought it was a very classy move of the fans at Steinbrenner Field to give Damon a standing-oh during his first plate appearance yesterday. And, I hope he gets the same when he returns to the Bronx, for the first time, this season.
