Red Sox make their offer to Damon, 4 years/40 mil

Postby Red Stripe » Tue Dec 06, 2005 9:08 pm

From Rotoworld

The Red Sox are preparing a four-year, $40 million offer to Johnny Damon, sources told the Providence Journal's Sean McAdam.
Boras and Red Sox CEO Larry Lucchino had a negotiating session late Monday night, which was productive, McAdam says. Neither the Yankees, Tigers or Cubs has gotten involved, so it's unclear who Boston is bidding against right now. Still, the Red Sox aren't going to get him any cheaper than four years and $40 million. Dec. 6 - 7:01 pm et


Chances are looking good Damon stays a Red Sox.

Might wanna change that title... $1 Million might be a little insulting to Johnny. :-D

I doubt Damon signs for a while. Boras seems to be set on getting the Yankees involved, but they aren't biting unless it's for 3 years. Boras will likely carry this thing out for a while, like he usually does.

Title still dodgy!

Seriously, if he takes this, I'm ok with it. Any more and it's a bad deal imho.

4/40 is ok by me. I haven't read anything about the Yankees going 4 and JD wants to stay in Boston so as long as the money matches he should be back.
