Didn't realize that Johnny Damon and Brett Favre were such good friends. I can't remember a guy who probably is not a superstar, and not really even that hot of a commodity being such a pain in the ass to sign. Especially a guy that is what 37 years old, and probably more interested in dealing with his arthritis treatment than playing baseball?
It has been at least 6 weeks since I first heard the rumors about Johnny Damon signing with the Tigers. Now 6 weeks later I have heard that it was a done deal at least 3 times over the last 2 weeks. Then Damon wants to squeeze a few more dollars out and it starts all over again. Now he is flirting with the Chicago White Sox, but they say they aren't signing him because they offered way less than we reportedly did.
So basically we are overpaying hi in the market, and he is bending us over to wait for him to get shot down everywhere else. Good old Boras and DD and helping his clients drive their price up at the expense of the Tigers.
