Johnny Damon Says He Can Still Play (AUDIO)Former Tampa Bay Rays and Boston Red Sox outfielder, Johnny Damon joined Jeff Zito Saturday morning. Recently Johnny had gone on record as saying “When you feel you can still outhit at least half the league and you don’t get that call, it’s rough,” Damon told The Associated Press in a phone interview this past Friday. Well Jeff didn’t shy away from finding out exactly what he meant by that. He told Jeff that “Obviously I feel like I could play, I feel anyone could play even Cal Ripkin could get base hits. Maybe not to the level he once did, or I once did”. He also added “You want to play as long as you can, because once the uniform is off, it’s tough”.
