Detroit is idiot's delight

Johnny Damon is defending his decision to stay with the Tigers as the Red Sox continue to reel from the outfielder rejecting their claim for him to rejoin them.

``Detroit, you know, gets a bad rap," he told the Free Press.  ``I love it here. My family loves it here. A bunch of the players who have been here awhile love it here. The new guys love it here. There's a lot to offer here. Yeah, we know the auto industry and the economy takes a beating here, but it's up to us players to keep people excited, to entertain people, to have people enjoy their lives and enjoy watching the Detroit Tigers."
