The Tigers have expressed no interest in Damon

Jan 15, 2010, 3:12 PM EDT

As I’ve said over and over again, when you get a Jon Heyman-reported, almost-nothin’-to-it rumor connecting a Scott Boras client to a second team there’s a more than decent chance it’s noise designed to trick the first team into thinking it’s a bidding war.  Damon’s talking to the Braves, and then suddenly the Tigers are mentioned?  Sure, why not? Except:

Tigers president/GM Dave Dombrowski, thru spokesperson: We have not expressed interest in Johnny Damon.

I have to imagine that just about every team has figured this out by now. Well, maybe not St. Louis. But most others have, haven’t they?

Of course, the Braves themselves are lukewarm, so maybe this is all just folly in order to make a market for Damon. Or make the Yankees jealous or something.

    I wonder what kinda cut Heyman gets when this actually works. What is the pay exactly for being a dumb douche?

    This tweet is amazing- the Detroit Skyline (probably shot from Belle Isle) must have been photoshopped to hell!
    For the second time in two hours, Welcome Back, Johnny.

    Craig, if Johnny Damon looked like Jesus again, don’t you think he’d play better to a bunch of rich crackers in Georgia?

    If Heyman involved the Tigers as a rouse and it didn’t work does he have to refund his idle gossip fee to Boras?

    Heyman is looking more and more like a Boras lapdog.

    Kudos to Dombrowski for figuring out the only way to fight the misinformation campaign of Scott Boras.
