It's official: The Tigers signed Johnny Damon yesterday to a one year, $8 million deal.

Congrats, RSS, this is a strong addition to the team. While probably not a complete replacement for Granderson, Damon brings a ton of intangibles to the table and it extremely clutch. The Red Sox made a big mistake in not keeping him in 2005 and, I hope, so did the Yankees this year.

Here's some cool info: "Damon is a .363/.413/.550 hitter in 189 career plate appearances at Comerica Park."

He had 24 home runs last year, but that's probably inflated because the Yankees play at that little league field. So I expect he'll hit about 20 home runs this year. Still, though, intangibles, big time.

the D isn't exactly overjoyed about this turn of events.

Damon's agent, Boras, got the Tigers to enter a ghost market and overbid for his services (the White Sox and Braves were only slightly interested, and they weren't offering close to $8 million).


the only good thing is that they only have him one year. it would have been a nightmare scenario had he signed for two years at $14 million or more.


the tigers aren't going to be in a legit contender next season and it sucks that boras got them to agreed to a no-trade clause, so they can't even dump him for a prospect late in the year.


boras 1, tigers 0.

lol, I love how MM changes the story from "NY offered as much money" to "he could have made up the difference."

How does that Spankee Kool-Aid taste, MM ? lol

Baseball season is right around the corner, prepare for the trash talk, my friend.

That guy made so much money in his career ,that 2 mil shouldn't be the difference between playing on a winner(Yankees) and playing on a loser (Tigers)!
:lol: He will regret it !!!!!!!!!!!!!! Unfortunately,the Yankees and WE the fans may suffer for it !!!!!!!!! :cry:

Anytime the Yankees and their fans suffer, it is a good thing.

I think you will revise your opinion of Damon as the season get underway, RSS. Yes, he's a bit of a rental player, but he's a strong addition that you'll be happy to have at some point in the season.

lol, CHP looks decent. Nice pick-up by the Yankees.

It's usually middle relief that makes or breaks an inordinate number of games in the season, so this is a good signing, I won't rip on the Spankees for this one.

Figured we'd just keep cooking in this thread till the season starts @ the end of the month.

Red Sox rumoured to be very close to signing a contract extension w. Josh Beckett.

My boy, Tim Wakefield, pitched 3 shut out innings the other day. Still fighting for a spot in the rotation and looking bad ass in the process.

Also, a picture that may make MM cry ... Yankee Stadium destroyed:
