Cubbie blue sounds good to Johnny Damon, who wears red as a key member of the Red Sox. The American League's premier leadoff hitter with a .339 batting average and AL-best runs with 73 can be a free agent after the season and admitted Thursday night before the Red Sox-White Sox game that he would have interest in the Cubs, who are having center-field problems. ''I'll have my eyes open to any team with interest in me, but the Cubs would have an appeal,'' he said.

The Cubs would be a good fit for Damon, but they won't go after him. They have a young stud at CF in Felix Pie, who would be in their lineup now if it weren't for an injury. I agree, he should just shut up about other opportunities and just play ball.

Why in the world is he even discussing this issue at this point. The off-season is the place for that, not the pennant race. The appropriate comment would have been "no comment."

The fact that he even mentions this should be the reason that teams don't go after him. Another thing is that this being his contract year, he is performing well, that is bad luck. There are a lot of players that end up doing terrible after a situation like this.

No way in hell will he go to the cubs...I dont think he will resign with us but I think hes gonna go to the yankees....The Boss already said hes gonna do anything in his power to sign Damon which basically means make him the highest paid CF in the game...

Damon is a very good centerfielder but if boss made him the highest paid center fielder in the game that is just plain stupid because he isn't THAT good.
