Johnny Damon was DFA’d by the Indians after a mere 64 games last year, and they were 64 profoundly ineffective games at that. But the former Royal, Atheltic, Red Sox, Yankee, Tiger, Ray and Indian still thinks he has something in the tank:
“I liked being home last season with my kids. But I’m in shape and if I could play, I would,” he said. “We’ll see what happens. I still think I have something left if I am used the right way.”
Lots of teams are scrambling for outfielders right now, but I don’t think anyone is scrambling quite so desperately.
