Although it’s not reporting the terms of the offer, ESPN.com is reporting that the Tigers have made an offer to Johnny Damon. In the same article it is also reported that the Atlanta Braves remain interested in Damon, but no further details are provided so the latter may only be speculation.
Yankee fans will be paying close attention to the size of any deal Damon signs. If Damon signs with the Tigers then Detroit GM Dave Dombrowski will be making an early push for being the Not GM of the Year. Dombrowski had young, affordable left-handed Curtis Granderson earlier this offseason. Now he may be about to replace him with old, greedy left-handed Johnny Damon.
