Will Jason Bay Be the New Johnny Damon in Boston?

Amanda BrunoCorrespondent IDecember 23, 2009

There's something cooking in New York and no, it's not the Mets.

Melky Cabrera got shipped away to the Atlanta Braves in exchange for Javier Vazquez and he'll have his second stint in pinstripes.
With Curtis Granderson as one of the newest outfielders for the Yankees this doesn't seem surprising, but with Hideki Matsui off to California (even though he served as a designated hitter in 2009) and Johnny Damon more than likely on his way out, why trade away an outfielder?
Unless, there's another sure deal in the works.
That's where Jason Bay comes in. 
No matter what anyone says, Bay is not coming back to Boston. It's more than clear.
Bay could very well be the newest signing in New York after Christmas.
If that does happen, where does this leave Red Sox fans? 
Will he be another traitor just like Damon?
Will fans boo him so hard every time his name is announced or comes to the plate at Fenway they'll lose their voices?
Or how about making creative signs to show their true feelings?
Yes it would be devastating, I mean this guy came from the Pittsburgh Pirates and no one knew who he was until he replaced Manny Ramirez in 2008. Now all of a sudden everyone wants this guy, including the Yankees.
But it's true props to Theo Epstein for finding him first.
It always seems to happen this way. Maybe Bay will be smart and go to Seattle like everyone else.
