Damon: Evil Empire's '09 Title Tainted By A-Rod
Johnny Damon has emerged from retirement to blast Alex Rodriguez and his use of PEDs. When asked if the Evil Empire's 2009 title was tainted by A-Rod, Damon stated, "It would be a shame if that’s the only reason we won against the Twins, Angels and Phillies...but if that’s how he [A-Rod] was able to hit in the postseason, like he did that year, then yeah, absolutely." Indeed, the 2009 World Champions now boast at least three juicers—The Fraudulent One himself, Francisco Cervelli and Melky Cabrera. Damon's interview on Sirius/XM Radio has ignited a firestorm in Gotham City, with some current Yankee players feeling the need to defend their 2009 hardware. For example, David Robertson stated, "...we had a good team that year. With or without those guys, we were going to be there. I don’t think it takes anything away from that World Series." Uh-huh.
