Early this afternoon a Major League source confirmed the Braves have made a one-year offer to Damon. This source added that the offer included some money that would be deferred.
David O'Brien also weighs in with this comment:
Damon and Boras haven't backed off from demand for two-year deal; Boras says he already has at least one 2-yr offer but won't name team.
Boras has been known to
lie through his teeth exaggerate when trying to get the best deal for his client. These certainly seem like words being used to parlay what is likely only a one-year Braves offer into a two-year offer.
I continue to stand opposed to bringing Johnny Damon into the fold. Steadfastly opposed.
