Damon told MLB Network if given the choice he would like to go in to the Hall of Fame as a Royal. This doesn't bug me quite honestly. He's had an illustrious career that's by majority happened elsewhere. We've only had him for what's not even a full season yet. He's been a Godsend. I think he deserves to choose, but alas the rules don't allow that.
One thing I will say is I thought this was our best chance to see someone want to be inducted as a Ray as we're his real hometown team as he lives and grew up in Orlando. Nevertheless, I respect Damon and his choice. I just hope that hometown factor factors in enough to keep him in Tampa Bay for the 2012 season.
