Yanks get more bullpen help

The Florida Marlins fire sale continued as the Yankees pick up lefty Ron Villone in exchange for minor leaguer Ben Julianel. He doesn't have overpowering stuff, but the journeyman will make a seasoned long and middle reliever. I think he's a definite step up from Al Leiter as lefty specialist.

Newly acquired Mike Myers (the pitcher not the comedian) is actively campaigning his former Red Sox buddy Johnny Damon to join the Yankees. He definitely feels strongly. Is he the Superman Scott Boras is selling him as? No way. But I believe is a tough player in the mold of Paul O'Neill. Any help Myers can give in bringing him here is greatly appreciated.
