MLB.com’s Mark Bowman reports that the Braves “have made a one-year offer to” Johnny Damon that includes “some money that would be deferred.” (UPDATE: That one-year offer “is believed to be worth at least $5 million.”)
Along those same lines, David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution wrote this afternoon that the “Braves’ interest in Damon has increased” and Chipper Jones even contacted him about coming to Atlanta (presumably when he wasn’t busy hyping prospect Jason Heyward, who’d likely be kept in the minors by a Damon signing).
O’Brien adds that Damon and agent Scott Boras “haven’t backed off” their demand for a two-year deal, and are in fact telling teams that they already have a two-year offer on the table from someone. Of course, earlier this week Boras claimed that Damon had “four or five” offers on the table.
That table? Located on mars.
