Buster Olney is reporting via Twitter that Orlando Cabrera will today choose between offers from the Rockies and Reds. The Reds have been linked to Damon, but I wonder whether signing Cabrera, should he choose to accept their offer, would put the kibosh on a Damon deal being worked out.
Carton, of Boomer and Carton today brought up a good point. If Boras had a better deal out their for Damon, as he has claimed, why would he care whether or not the Yankees made an official offer or were prepared to move on to Johnson, Granderson and Vazquez? More specifically, why make such a public stink about it unless you realize the Yankees walking away also means you missed out on the best offer you could have gotten your client? You can never rule out Boras, but I don't see this ending well for Damon.
