Still waiting for a Damon decision

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Aug 24, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

It’s a beautiful day in Toronto. Of course, you wouldn’t know it from inside the dome.

While we’re still waiting for the clubhouse to open, the Red Sox are still waiting on a decision from Johnny Damon, who has to decide whether to accept a move out of Detroit and back to Boston. This afternoon, he told our old friend Pete Abraham that he’s leaning toward Detroit.

“I think we’re still in this,” Damon said. “But I’ve got to know whether they’re going to keep playing me or whether they’re going to go with the younger guys. If I’m not going to play as much, the decision is a no-brainer.”

For whatever it’s worth Buster Olney thinks Damon will be convinced to leave.

In other waiver news, the White Sox are apparently planning to claim Manny Ramirez whenever he ends up on waivers. That would have to happen really quickly to impact the Yankees upcoming series in Chicago. The bigger Yankees impact of a White Sox claim might be keeping Ramirez out of Tampa Bay.

As for some Yankees news this afternoon: D.J. Mitchell is about to make his Triple-A debut in a Scranton/Wilkes-Barre rotation that has a combined 19 Triple-A starts this season. Mitchell had been pitching very well in Trenton the past two months or so. He was easily one of my favorite guys to talk to this spring. Just a really nice guy who happens to induce a lot of ground balls.

    MTU – I hear what you’re saying. Back in the day, Pete would have no problem banning the offending parties, or at least outing them. I know Chad banned in his time here, as well.

    I’m hoping that the few who instigate trouble will be dealt with by LoHud. I really hope it happens quickly, so as not to lose valuable contributors of all stripes.

    Damon has decided to reject both the Tigers and Red Sox and run off with Erica from Lohud.

    Thanks for the non-news Chad. ;)

    So, I’m not annointing Nova anything, but in light of the injuries/dead arm issues we have it’s good to have someone like him around.

    I’m a believer (up to a point) of letting the kids try out for the 5th slot if there’s room. Not trying to push Andy out the door, but there is the whole stupid Roger thing.

    Hopefully, Andy gets healthy and tries for one more year.

    Wouldn’t it be nice to have a groundball pitcher at NYS?

    Anyway, Nova didn’t embarrass himself. That’s more than others have done.

  7. CR9 August 24th, 2010 at 3:33 pm

    I think Damon stays. He’s far too classy to go back to that sewer state.

    he is going to Boston , Erica. Better exposure , playing time and chance to enhance his free agency status.

    If there is one thing i have learned about Johnny Damon , it’s all about the Benjamins!
    Werd, dollar dollar yo!

  9. m August 24th, 2010 at 3:34 pm

    Oh, gosh. That’s all over the place. Basically, if Andy doesn’t come back, Nova’s a nice candidate especially since he’s a groundball pitcher.

    Get Lee and Try for 3. :)

    Like this quote though:

    “I think we’re still in this,” Damon said of the Tigers.

  17. CountryClub August 24th, 2010 at 3:36 pm

    It’s good to see that the Yanks have promoted so many of their young pitchers at the end of this season. This way they’ll get their feet wet at the higher levels. And next year, when they start at those levels, it shouldn’t be a big deal to them.

  18. Erica in NY August 24th, 2010 at 3:37 pm

    Buston Olney has taken over as the Boston promoter at NESPN since Gammons left. Not being innovative, he relies on information Gammons feeds him VIA text from the MLB Network.

    And this is random, but can we stop referring to the trolls/spammers/attention seekers as “children?” I kinda feel like it gives children a bad name.

    damon will go to the sux. he loves the spotlight but will try to twist it into he is the good guy blah blah blah.

    he was such a good guy with the yanks he could not see the rationale for a pay cut………

    he will take the sux offer at the last momnet to act like he was tormented by the decision. he is a standard phony……….

  25. Captain Clutch August 24th, 2010 at 3:40 pm

    I think Damon will go back everyone knows he loves the attention. He might not be happy with the organization and the way things ended but he will love being the talk of town. If I was him I wouldn’t go just to stick it to them and it’s not like Boston is a good team anyway.

  26. CR9 August 24th, 2010 at 3:40 pm

    Re: Buster. He has said previously that Peter is his hero and mentor. So of course it’s only natural for him to follow in his Red Sox fan’s footsteps and spout Boston propaganda

  27. tk August 24th, 2010 at 3:40 pm

    I agree with Olney that Damon will ultimately return to Boston. It almost sounds like he’s already made his decision–based on his comments about playing time and Heyman’s tweet about Damon being as clever as Wagner was when originally opposed to going to Boston then ultimately agreed to go. Then again, Detroit is where he “wanted to be all along,” so he couldn’t possibly choose to leave could he? Fortunately, the Yankees shouldn’t really be affected either way.

  28. Don August 24th, 2010 at 3:51 pm

    Yeah, he can go to Boston, but if he gets some hits off the Yankees, I don’t want to have to read all the comments from bloggers who say that the Yanks should have kept Damon. That is really old stuff.

  29. cs in la August 24th, 2010 at 4:49 pm

    Damon just said he’s staying in Detroit. That means he’s coming to NY.

    La propreté n’est pas le seul moyen que l’on pour-cent cherchent à se différencier de la société, cependant. Alors que les tatouages ??sont de plus en plus monnaie courante dans la société actuelle, ils sont toujours considérés comme déviants, et étaient particulièrement vrai lorsque clubs de motards ont commencé. (Thompson) Comme Quinn et état Forsyth, «faire un tatouage dans un gang de motards est considérée comme bonne et conforme aux règles d’un gang de motards". Tatouages ??sont devenus une autre forme de étalage de leur division des citoyens de la classe ouvrière qui trouveraient difficile de travailler si elles étaient couvertes de tatouages. Par eux-mêmes de marquage à l’encre, les membres du club, il est difficile de retourner au travail si elles devaient quitter la sous-culture. Cette cimente leur position dans la hiérarchie de la sous-culture en confirmant leur loyauté envers le club. (Thompson)
