Damon Agrees to sign with Tigers

Saturday, February 20, 2010

Ex-Yankee Johnny Damon finally has a team for the 2010 season. He has agreed to a 1-year $8million contract with the Detroit Tigers. He essentially replaces Curtis Granderson while Granderson is replacing Damon.

I don't know what Damon or Scott Boras were thinking when negotiating with the Yankees. They Yankees offered 2 years $14mil and they declined. I know they wanted an Abreu-like deal but there was no way he would get the money he was looking for from any other team.Now he accepted a one year offer for just $1 million more. I wonder how badly Damon needs that extra million.

In other Yankees news, CC Sabathia threw today and said he felt fine. Sabathia threw 240 innings including the postseason and Girardi knows they need to keep an eye on him but at the same time knows he is capable of a heavy workload.

Enjoy your Saturday night.

See Ya!
