At Long Last, Johnny Damon is Signed

Finally. Johnny Damon is no longer hanging in the free agent balance.

The outfielder has agreed to a one-year, $8 million deal with the Detroit Tigers, complete with a shiny no-trade clause. Damon, who hit .286 with 24 homers last season for the New York Yankees, will likely bat in the leadoff spot this year.

Maybe, just maybe, we can shut the hell up about him now. At least until he does something awesome that's baseball-related... or gets busted with a hooker.

If you squint, he kind of looks like Kirk Gibson, circa 1984.
