Damon and Joba on the recent signings

Here are some quotes from Johnny Damon and Joba Chamberlain regarding the Yankees' recent signings.


"All of us saw how he dominated us," Damon said of the right-hander, who was 5-3 with a 2.39 ERA and held Yankee hitters to a .213 batting average and fanned 72 batters in 71 2/3 innings. "We always said if we had this guy we would have won the past three years."

"On most teams, Sabathia, Burnett and Wang would be No. 1 starters," Damon said. "We have three No. 1 guys."
"It is great. It's going to be exciting for us," said Joba Chamberlain Joba Chamberlain , who was at Last Licks in Manhattan yesterday for an autograph signing. "[Sabathia] is a great competitor, and he brings a lot to the table."

"[Burnett] is just another guy who goes out and competes and knows how to win," the Chamberlain said. "He is a great addition and another top of the rotation guy for us."

"The way our front office did things today was fantastic," he said. "They went about their business and got things done, and it is very exciting."

"I feel less stress because you have all these guys around to be leaders for you," Chamberlain said. "It takes a little pressure off of everybody."
So there you have it. At least two people like the Burnett signing.
