TRADE TARGET: J.Damon


Rays should target J.Damon and put him as our leadoff hitter.

 

May not be the power the Rays are looking for but the guy brings the uniquie ability to get on base, especially when leading off an inning.  He brings a veteran familiarity, especially in desire to beat the Yankees and Red Sox.  He also has the ability to be a DH, that is one thing that doesn't need to be "discovered".


I do not feel the cost of acquisition would be too overwhelming to the Rays in terms of prospects, but would require the Rays paying 2.5-3.0 million.  Tigers would also be viewed as making a white flag type of trade, so sweeping them in St.Pete would go a long way to separating the Tigers from their belief in the post-season.
