ABSTRACT
The article presents information related to the baseball team New York Yankees. Johnny Damon's ability to chase down fly balls will help Hideki Matsui and Gary Sheffield, who won't have as much ground to cover in the outfield. The Yankees' decision to let Tom Gordon leave as a free agent could prove costly unless Kyle Farnsworth steps in and assumes the eighth-inning setup role without a problem.
