ESPNChicago reports Sox pull offer to Damon

Bruce Levine of ESPNChicago.com reports the White Sox have pulled their offer to Johnny Damon, effectively making the Tigers the winners. Maybe.

He quotes Sox GM Kenny Williams:

"It became clear to us in our recent negotiations that the money that we were offering was not going to be good enough for Johnny at this time," White Sox general manager Kenny Williams told ESPNChicago.com. "At this particular point, we feel it's necessary to withdraw our offer."

Levine wrote the Sox offer was about $6 million.

However, Damon's agent Scott Boras is still trying to get the best deal out of the Tigers, ESPN's Buster Olney reports on Twitter in a series of tweets:

Heard this: Scott Boras is now working a two-pronged approach on the Tigers. No. 1 -- he'd like to get Detroit to remove all deferred ... money out of their one-year, $7 million offer. Or No. 2, he'd wants Ilitch to actually give Damon legitimate second year in their offer.

So I guess  that's what Dave Dombrowski was talking about earlier in the day.
