My wife is crying upstairs. I hear cars coming to the house. General Manager of mine, I think it’s time you told your Don what everyone seems to know:

It had been known for several days that veteran outfielder Johnny Damon was being fitted for his Indians uniform, but there was still the matter of making things official. Cleveland took that step on Tuesday, announcing that it had signed Damon to a one-year Minor League contract.

Damon is in Goodyear, Arizona getting up to playing speed. He’ll likely join the team in early May.

    Reports say Damon was quoted as saying “I’d give a testicle to reach 3000 hits. No really, a guy can live with one”

    I thought that first sentence was a bit odd. But that’s me being too personal.

    I think Cleveland will get some nice usage out of the Speed Damon.

        You’ve had your drink. I want inquiries made

    Yes but I need, Len, all of those ballplayers that you carry around in your pocket, like so many nickels and dimes…
