I'd rather have Damon, unless Johnny D has been sitting around all winter getting fat. The Indians could always platoon Damon and Duncan.

Damon can still hit for power and he can still play the outfield. Abreu can no longer do either.

The Indians should have had enough sense to see this weeks ago, right after Sizemore's injury. They should have gone out and traded for a legit outfielder then. Or they should have signed Damon and ensured that he'd be ready to open the season when camp broke.

Instead, they opened up competition to a bunch of career backups and expected one guy to emerge as a legitimate big leaguer. Then they're disappointed when none of them does.

If they do sign Damon now, he'll probably have to go through extended spring training.
