12/19: Boras: Damon Offered to Come Back for 2 Years, $20 Million
Tyler Kepner of the Times reports
on the Johnny Damon negotiations, having spoken to the outfielder's agent, Scott Boras. Boras disputes reports that he held firm at 2 years, $26 million
, saying that he offered the team Damon's services for 2 years and $20 million dollars.
"The reason they did it is they said they did not have the budget for that type of proposal and they were going in a different direction," Boras told Kepner. "That was the end of it."
