After your career had taken off in a city that even landed you a guest appearance on Arthur (one of the best children's series ever!), you would think you might want to go back to that city. Well, not necessarily. Johnny Damon blocked a waiver claim that would have shipped him up to Boston. He says that he really likes Detroit, and he didn't necessarily want to leave that. I totally understand where he's coming from, but when a team puts you on waivers, there is perhaps the idea that they don't want you anymore. The potential reason that Damon was a little bit concerned about the situation in Detroit was about playing time. Of course, at this point in the season, teams are bringing up young players, so it does make it seem like a veteran outfielder might be in the way. However, if he has no problem with it, I don't see any reason why he shouldn't stay with Detroit. He understands what is best for the team, so it make sense that that he'd be okay with Detroit. All in all, I hope it works out for him, but I cannot imagine how hard it must be to turn down a place where he was so loved.

After a year of economics, I have learned about supply and demand; to be honest, that's about all I remember. That's the concept I'm applying to this blog; I am supplying the quality writing that you as the reader demand (or at least I hope I am living up to your standards). My name is Zak Schmoll; I am a Business Administration and Statistics double major at the University of Vermont. I have been a sports writer in Central Vermont with the Central Vermont Sports Network, The Bridge, as well as a regular contributor to "The Local Angle," by Jim Higgins in the Times Argus, but I have now taken my audience to the Internet. I hope you will come along with me on my random journey through my mind on the Perpetual Blogging Co. Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with story ideas, criticism, comments, or honestly anything that will not crash my computer when I open it.
