Former Red Sox/Yankees/Rays/Tigers center fielder Johnny Damon may not be playing ball these days, but at least he has something to keep him busy. He has a gigantic house in Florida.

Miguel Cabrera’s Face Bloodied Via Hunter Pence Grounder [PHOTOS]

Miguel Cabrera's face will look differnt the next time you see him doing interviews on ESPN.

A dislocated left shoulder and torn labrum later, this guy was the biggest bust in Yankees history. Now he's charged with cocaine trafficking. JUMP!
