Deep Thoughts: Detroit Tigers

0 Comments

In light of yesterday’s two-year, $14 million offer to Johnny Damon, I had a Deep Thought:  If you’re Dave Dombrowski how on Earth are you supposed to negotiate with players and their agents if they know that Mike Ilitch may just come in and blow the budget whenever it strikes his fancy?

Seems like credibility would, you know, matter a bit in that line of work. And thanks to the team’s owner, Dombrowski has way less of it any time he tells someone that the money just ain’t there.
