Extra Bases

Damon said to be close to a deal


Various reports have the Tigers and White Sox bidding for Johnny Damon. The Braves also have an interest, but not for more than one year.

Here is my question to you: If Johnny comes back to Fenway Park this season and you’re in the stands, will you cheer him or boo him?

Damon was savaged by the fans after he signed with the Yankees and it continued for the better part of four years. Having watched the Yankees take batting practice from the field, I’m here to tell you that some of the stuff people yelled at Damon was pretty crude.

Was that only because he was playing with the Yankees? It will be interesting to see what the reaction is if Damon returns in the uniform of another team.

One thing is indisputable: Damon played his heart out for four years in Boston. Here’s hoping he gets an ovation when next he comes back.

What do you think?
