Lots of mild interest in Johnny Damon, nothin’ serious

Two years ago, about 77% of our January-February posts were about Johnny Damon. This year? Not a ton, really. Aging is hard.

But after all of the ink we spilled back then — our first offseason on this blog — I still sort of feel like this is Johnny Damon season.  So I pass along the word from Jim Bowden:

Of course, no one seems all that serious.

Last we heard he wanted $5 million.  Seems pretty unlikely he’ll get that. He could still help someone though, so while some of the many DH-types may be without teams this year, I wouldn’t be shocked to see him sign a cheap deal before spring training begins.
