    I know his glory days have come and gone, but it would still be fun to watch him play for the Tribe. He has always been a class act.

    Thank Christ that someone competent enough will be in left field. Shame Smash Duncan won't play much.

    They need a guy who has some speed and can get on base. Damon does that. It doesn't hurt that he can be a plug-in in the outfield because Shelly Duncan is a slug on the bases.

    All reward type signing. No risk at all.

    Meh. Whatever.

    Slightly above average player. I'd rather he replace Brantley though. No reason to get rid of Damon when Grady comes back to keep playing Brantley's worthless ass.

    I realize Duncan is a limited player - but he seems to provide similar offense to what Damon will bring.

    The black holes are at CF and 1B.

    How about this? Duncan at first and Damon in left. Kotchman can come in and flash his golden glove in the 9th inning....It won't happen but it would the best case.

    I agree with this - but don't see Acta actually doing it.

    I'm also worried this will cost Lopez his roster spot since Cunningham is needed as the back-up CF.

    Yesterday's lineup vs a lefty makes me question how creative Acta is going to get with that lineup.

    Of course Slime Ball Antonetti would say that.

    I like Johnny Damon as a veteran bat and a full time upgrade over Duncan

    the question is who we lose to add Damon

    Agree - hope we lose Cunningham and keep Lopez.

    Are you being sarcastic or was there something else he was supposed to say?

    Grow up Corey and try and understand they are still negotiating

    The leaks to the press came from Damon's agent

    I think Holmgren should've gone on a Seattle radio station and broken the Damon story even before the contract is signed. Then he should have told us who the Browns are going to draft because it is important for the fans to know RIGHT NOW.
