Let's connect the dots on this one.
In his first public comment on rumors linking free-agent outfielder Johnny Damon to the White Sox, general manager Kenny Williams on Thursday morning told the Daily Herald: “I will talk about this on Sunday.”
The Detroit Tigers, meanwhile, have already offered Damon a reported two-year, $14 million contract.
And the Tigers have an empty locker waiting for Damon at the spring training camp in Lakeland, Fla. Sounds like he's going to be signing with Detroit in the next day or two.
Williams has a history of ignoring media requests when he's on the verge of making a trade or signing a free agent.
By saying he'll talk about Damon on Sunday _ the day pitchers and catchers report to the Sox' training camp in Glendale, Ariz. _ Williams might already know the 36-year-old outfielder is close to signing with the division rival Tigers.
Or, maybe Williams knows Damon's agent, Scott Boras, is going to take even more time before agreeing to any deal.
We'll keep you updated on the situation.
