Good news for Johnny Damon fans. Ran into Scott Boras walking through the lobby last night just before 3 a.m. Boston time, and he said that he'd spent considerable time talking with the Sox and things were looking "good." Scott doesn't say that kind of stuff unless he's closing in on a deal. The Sox are believed to have offered a four-year deal for JD, for a figure probably north of the $40 million they gave Jason Varitek and Edgar Renteria last year.
The Manny deal is stalled, supposedly. And now, Renteria could be on his way out. They are killing me softly with all of this. And still, we have no GM. Someone at work heard that the Theo thing isn't dead. This was mentioned in Sports Illustrated. You know, I wish that these notions weren't even entertained because they tug at my heart. Especially the Theo stuff. Either it's a possibility or it isn't. I hate getting hopeful just to have the wind taken out of my sails.
Oh, and hey - Grady Little and D-Lowe have reunited. Living happily in National League bliss.
