Damon Gets 2-Year Offer From Tigers

According to Ken Rosenthal of, the Tigers have offered Johnny Damon a 2-year $14 million deal.  According to Rosenthal, this offer was authorized by Tigers owner Mike Ilitch.

Rosenthal's sources seem to believe that Damon will take this deal, leaving the Braves to work with Cabrera, McClouth and Diaz (most likely) in the outfield until Jason Heyward is ready.  I think this is probably a better move for Atlanta in the long-run because of the potential of Jason Heyward, and the bad range/arm that Damon exhibits.  As a Mets fan, you have to be happy about this because it will keep the Braves from immediately upgrading their offense, BUT, it could open up an avenue for Heyward, who could be a real thorn for years to come...
