According to the Boston Globe, the Sox have had discussions with the Seattle Mariners concerning center fielder Jeremy Reed, in a deal that would send right-hander Matt Clement to the Mariners.
The more I consider it, the more I think that, even putting aside money somewhat, there are at least equal options out there to Damon. When money is thrown into the equation, it seems like Damon trails several candidates by quite a bit. Here’s a quick rundown of the guys I consider candidates to replace Johnny (ZIPS and Bill James Book OBP/SLG projection listed if available—all for 2005 home park):
First, Johnny Damon (.363/.437; .361/.425)
Jeremy Reed (No ZIPS; .363/.412)
Jason Michaels (.393/.418; .400/454) (in Philly)
Coco (.353/.448; .348/.442)
And now the true stopgaps:
Kenny Lofton (.333/368; .356/.391)
Dave Roberts (No ZIPS; .339/.358)
There are others that might also be available (especiall from Oakland, where they now have 56 CF), but these are the names that I’ve heard. I think Michaels, Reed, and Coco are all superior options to Damon, even considering that they will cost something in a trade. I hope that the duo is currently working on getting one of these guys, regardless of how the Damon thing plays out. Who do you want to see in CF in 06?
