OK. Check out the logo. Don't know why I never thought of it before last night...BUT...why is the apostrophe in the logo??? Maybe I'm dumb but I don't get it.

I think that answers the question pretty well. It's a "hack" used so that it is understandable. Otherwise, they'd be the Oakland As, which could be confusing for some.

I think the issue with Damon is what kind of player will he be in the second half of the contract? He will be 35 and 36 for the second half and paying him $13 million per year will be overpaying at that point. That is the Yankee advantage, though.
