Damon is in a pretty good spot. He knows there still two or three teams that can use his services.
Really? The Braves were interested for $2 million and then backed out. The White Sox were interested for about $6 million (if I'm not mistaken) and pulled out. Nobody was going more than one year. Detroit is stupid to go two years especially with the other contracts they have on the books right now.
He's a good player that will help what ever team he signs with.
Good, yes, but he won't be Yankee Stadium good...and he's a pretty big liability in the outfield
Why rush into a contract?
Rush? Uh, it's almost in March and pitchers and catchers have already reported...
There are much worse contracts out there then what Damon is asking for
Yes, there are...and some big ones are right there in Detroit. All the reason to get Damon at a reasonable one year deal.
