The Johnny Damon Saga is Over

After the last 24 hours saw the Braves beat writers saying that Atlanta still had a stake in the Johnny Damon sweepstakes, the Detroit Tigers have apparently signed the veteran outfielder to a one-year $7 million contract, according to Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports.

Consider this blogger vindicated and satisfied. This clears the path for Jason Heyward, and sets up a nice platoon in left with Melky Cabrera and Matt Diaz. I think that's just as good as Damon, and certainly more forward-looking. Nate McLouth will handle the leadoff role just fine.

Carry on.
