Hinske’s coming back

Solid part-timer, excellent pinch hitter and a good character guy. Plus, he wants to be here.

Glad to have you back, EH.

The outfielder/first baseman agreed to a one-year deal with a second-year option to stay with the Braves, turning down an offer from the Milwaukee Brewers in his home state, said a person familiar with negotiations. Contract figures weren’t immediately known, but the deal includes plenty of incentives for number of plate appearances.

    Cool.

    Although it would have been on hell of a sign off, I’m glad that homer wasn’t his final act as a Brave.

  2. Maybe if Chipper’s not ready to go, some of those PA-linked incentives will kick in…

  3. Doesn’t sound like you want him back.

    “Glad to have you back, eh…”

  4. $1.35 mil with a club option for 2012 at $1.5 mil or a $100k buyout.
