He Really is Darth Boss George

“I told him, ‘Welcome to New York, you’re going to be here next year,'” Gannon said.

Regis: Boss loves Damon

Philbin told Damon, “So I’m sitting there with George Steinbrenner in his box last night. You come up to bat. I said, ‘George, this guy is a great center fielder.’ George loves you. He says, yes, you really are.”

Off camera, Philbin kept telling Damon how much Steinbrenner had been raving.

Damon, clearly enjoying the attention, noted in between autographs at the bookstore, “You know Regis spends time with The Boss, so it’s gotta be true. If there were Red Sox personnel there, I’m sure they got on the phone with (owner) John Henry right away.”

Good Lord…this is just nutty enough to happen.

Think about it: Idiot Number One is playing out his contract, which usually spurs players to put up neon numbers. Bernie, bless his axe-strumming soul, isn’t likely to be a Yankee next year, no matter what kind of numbers he puts up. Darth Boss plugs his centerfield hole and enrages Red Sox Nation in a way that will be positively awe-inspiring to watch unfold, or forces John Henry and Theo to wildly overpay for the Caveman. And, if Steinbrenner actually signs him, Damon is finally forced to bathe, shave and get his locks trimmed at least once a week.
