Johnny Damon Rumors: Saturday

Pitchers and catchers report next week, but Johnny Damon still doesn't have a home for the 2010 season. ESPN's Buster Olney hears that "at least one team which might have extended an offer has no expectation that [Damon] would actually take a two-year offer; rather, part of the negotiation with that team is that he would take only that one year." 

Olney says that executives involved in the negotiations expect Damon to eventually accept a one-year deal worth $7MM with some deferred money, so his people can say he turned down a two-year deal. Meanwhile, Drew Sharp of The Detroit Free Press wonders if Scott Boras is just using the Tigers to create a market for Damon when one doesn't exist. 

If Damon has in fact received a two-year offer worth $14MM from the Tigers, I can't see how he could turn that down at this point.
