Nothing continues to happen with Damon and the Tigers

Feb 16, 2010, 4:55 PM EDT

Jon Paul Morosi is a former Tigers beat guy, and he’s been hounding his Detroit sources these past few days.  The verdict? Nothing. Nada. Bupkis. Which is something of a shock, given that the Tigers allegedly gave our favorite unemployed left fielder a two-year, $14 million offer.

You’d think he would have jumped all over that by now, now?  I mean, it’s leaps and bounds better than anything the Braves, Rays or White Sox are offering, if indeed any of them have offered him anything at all.  An offer that certainly represents the best thing he’ll see this winter and — since it matches the last best offer he got from the Yankees — allows him and his agent to save serious face.

Unless of course Buster Olney’s report from last weekend that the two year offer was full of quasi-baloney, floated by Mike Ilitch with the understanding that Damon would eventually only accept a one-year deal with the club was accurate.

    I bet Damon takes Boras off his X-mas card list for this one……
    Damon will be so close to home he may have to call it home.
    This is all Boras fault, he screwed the Yankees and Damon.

    I’m going to cork my ass with leaves and mud like a bear and go to sleep in the basement of the Tropicana Dump – closest thing to a dripping cave with an internet hotspot you can find – until it warms up over 80 down here. Wake me up when this pointless story reaches some kind of a conclusion, OK?

    The reason JD has not signed wit the Tigers yet is because he is still considering all those other offers that Boras brought to him. When you have a top notch agent like Scott Boras it takes time to go through all the offers that you get! HA HA!!

    Thanks for the non-update. I can now go on with my life.

    No team in their right mind would give a 36 yr. old player , who will kill you with his arm, and some cases his glove , 1 yr. @ 7, or 2 @ 14 mil. In a big stadium like Detroit, Damon would have a hard time reaching the cut off man.
