Obviously there’s been a lot of buzz about Damon signing with the Tigers this week. I know a lot of Yankee fans are upset that he didn’t take the contract the Yanks offered him(believed to be 2 years 14 million). I think it’s a shame because he fits nicely into the Yankees lineup, and Yankee Stadium is a great place for him to hit. His personality fit well in NYC, and I think he did himself a disservice by not resigning with the Yankees. I’m sure some of the blame can go to his agent Scott Boras, but at the end of the day when your a player you essentially run the show, so if Johnny wanted to stay here he could have. Instead he goes to Detriot a team that will likely not be in the race, with a contract that is a year less and only for a million dollars
