Damon Cut, But Is He Dried?

Add Johnny Damon to the ranks of aging veterans now designated for assignment. Barely a day after the Cleveland Indians did it to teammate Derek Lowe, the Tribe dropped it on Damon, which didn’t exactly surprise him. “If we’re not in contention, I’ll be the first one they drop,” he was quoted as saying to MLB.com in May. He was wrong in only one sense: he’s the second one to be dropped since the non-waiver trade deadline expired.

His last stand at an end?
