Boras and Dombrowski have not discussed Damon’s interest in Detroit
Though Johnny Damon’s agent, Scott Boras, has done his best to spur the Detroit Tigers’ interest in his 36-year old client – GM Dave Dombrowski actually seems somewhat intrigued by the outfielder – according to the Detroit News, the two parties have not had any discussions about Damon’s interest in playing for Motown. In addition, when asked about Damon, Dombrowski noted, “We’re not close to making any kind of deals at this point.” While Dombrowski’s denial must be taken with a certain level of skepticism, it is somewhat telling that the two parties have not yet had any recent discussions. Perhaps Detroit is simply waiting for Damon’s asking price to completely bottom out.
