Johnny Damon is no longer a Yankee, at last Damon accepted a one-year, $8 million dollar contract from the Detroit Tigers.
For Damon dreams came true, as we just learned that Detroit has always been Damon’s first choice. Even after the divorce with Red Sox Nation, the Yankees were his reinforcements after the Tigers.
Sounds about right?
No doubt, Damon had an at bat, followed by a super steal in Philly during Game 4 of the Word Series that kept the game alive but a lot of players came up key to win the game.
Damon is angry, but the brainwashing by Scott Boras is the reason he is no longer in pinstripes.
Johnny Damon is an excellent teammate, and he will hold the lead-off spot for the Tigers perfectly. I wish him all the best, but it was time for a change.
