Some Info From Cash and Girardi

First this from Girardi via Marc Carig:
Girardi: Golson trade doesn't mean Yankees are out of market for outfielder. Of course a peak at Golson's numbers said the same thing.
And regarding Damon returning to the Yanks he said "I don't see it getting done. But you never say never."

Cashman had this to say about Damon to Carig:
"Don't bother paying attention. Johnny's physical abilities exceed our financial abilities at this point in time."
Also regarding the Damon situation is this from Brian Cashman via Bryan Hoch:
Brian Cashman on Johnny Damon: "I'm not having any discussions on him. His abilities exceed the money that I have."
Cashman on Damon, part 2: “He’s a valuable player that a lot of teams are talking to, I’m sure." Asked if the Yankees are one, he said "No."
Cashman is also apparently eying a right-handed bat:
NYY priority is a RH-hitting OF. “I have players that are willing to move with me when I decide to," Cashman said.
Based on all this I'd put the Yankees chances at resigning Damon at about 1-2% and that might be a stretch.
