White Sox in the mix for Damon?

Feb 11, 2010, 7:53 PM EDT

It seems an unlikely match, given the team’s limited flexibility financially, but the White Sox are being talked about as a new suitor for free agent Johnny Damon.
The White Sox certainly have room for Damon in their lineup. After electing not to bring back Jim Thome, they currently have Andruw Jones and Mark Kotsay atop their depth chart at DH. Another bat could help a bunch, and Damon would offer plenty of flexibility in case Carlos Quentin has more foot problems and is forced to DH a few times per week.
Money, though, is a major issue. It’s doubtful that the White Sox would come close to matching the Tigers’ reported two-year, $14 million offer. If they did, Damon might well pick Chicago. It’s a better place to hit, and the team is at least as good of a bet as Detroit to contend this year. But while Ken Williams is as full of surprises as any GM in the game, it seems awfully unlikely that he’ll suddenly come up with the money for Damon after being shut down most of the winter.

    Some time ago, I needed to buy a good house for my business but I did not have enough money and couldn’t order anything. Thank heaven my dude adviced to try to get the personal loans from creditors. Thus, I did so and was satisfied with my financial loan.
