Johnny Damon and Manny Ramirez are reunited on the Rays and in the AL East. Damon is a savvy veteran, and a clubhouse leader on multiple World Series Teams.
Damon can still hit, and is not a complete horror show in the outfield. He is expected to put up similar numbers to Carl Crawford, and that may not be such an over-projection.
Sure he won't steal nearly as many bases as Crawford, or play great defense, but he will still hit for a good average, with some power, while stealing a few bases. He will essentially be the poor-man's Carl Crawford.
Damon's skill set will not erode over the course of 2011, and he will probably catch on with someone late in the offseason process of 2012.
