I've heard rumors that he's coming to the Tigers..
"15,395 Days since they won the cup...3 seconds left, THE DETROiT RED WINGS ARE THE STANLEY CUP CHAMPIONS!!!"

"Lemiuex was hammered by Darren McCarty, and he is being helped into the locker room."

I'm sure this has nothing to do with his possible signing with the Tigers.

Yeah, convenient timing. That's fine, though. The guy's dumber than a rock, but real baseball smart. Bring him on board!

I might be able to like Damon again? Woo hoo! Maybe the Tigers will let him grow his hair long again.

Haha, I'm sure they would. As far as I know, the Yankees are the only team that imposes a grooming policy.

No one is ever sarcastic on the internet. It is always SRS BZNZ.
Hudler!!


"If you didn't know him, and saw him without hockey gear, you'd never suspect Datsyuk to be a world-class athlete. He walks a bit hunched over. His gait is somewhat crab-like, almost like he's still skating, even on dry land.

But put him on skates and he's Houdini on ice. He is not the fastest skater by a long shot, but there can't be too many who are stronger or more flexible. Checking him has to feel like checking Gumby. You might get a piece of him, but he bounces away, moving faster thanks to the leverage he gained from your check."

The yankees signed Thames too... they are just taking all our players... I think Damon isn't as productive as he used to be, so who knows if the tigers want him

Damon's still putting up fairly solid numbers for a guy in his role at his age. I think part of the worry is that everyone is expecting a decline.

edited for clarification.

Ya know, i root for the red sox (and yes Damon) whenever the Tigers are out of contention. Boston has always had a softspot in my heart for all sports. i just love the history of the town (sox, bruins patriots). One time while visiting Boston just after they had won the world series and Damon went the yankees i saw a shirt in a store that i loved. It had a picture of damon with his long hair and facial hair and the shirt read "looks like Jesus, throws like marry, ACTS LIKE JUDAS" as you can tell, many Sox fans including me were very bitter about him leaving town for the biggest Rival team of Boston. I lost alot of respect for him when he went to the yanks, cut his hair and shaved his beard, as a hate sellouts. Now im a HUGE tigers fan, probably the biggest you will ever meet, but i find it so weird that after HATING this guy for so long and not wanting him to ever play in a tigers uniform, i hear that this guy is a fan of the Red wings and STEVE YZERMAN and i open my arms to him hahaha. does that make me shallow? or just a die hard wings fan as much as im a die hard tigers fan? lol. Im sure the whole story is BS and Boras (those of us that know just what kind of an agent he is) is just making things up to snag Detroit attention, but i cant help but wonder haha

If im not mistaken, i think he was at pace for 1 homerun for every 14 at bats. Thats pretty good for a decent power hitter. Yankees are just playing smart baseball. They didnt commit to a major league contract, but they know that if he heats up in the minors hes a mid season call up or a late season/post season call up for sure.

Ugh, Damon is not what the Tigers need. He's like the only person in the league that could actually make our already terrible outfield worse...

Agreed to an extent. Damon can't be any worse than Guillen is in left and the Tigers desperately need a leadoff hitter. If nothing else, they have Raburn/Thomas as defensive replacements.

I would be very happy with Johnny Damon coming to the Tigers.
