Red Sox false messiah watch.

Now we know the answer to Red Sox Nation's faith-based query, "WWJDD?": He'll become a Yankee. (Red Sox theology watch: There's baptism in the opening graf in this Globe story.) Will his messianic hair survive the transition? Will he lose his powers like Samson? No matter what happens to Damon's locks, the Times predicts a lot of haircuts for his disillusioned followers.

Not being a Red Sox fan, I can't sympathize. The guy did a great job and helped his team win. I just wonder why Boston wouldn't try to keep him when they knew Steinbrenner + Team were aggressively courting him.

Weird, if you ask me.
