Now we learn that Johnny Damon prefers a one-year deal — ideal for the Braves. Sounds like $7 mil would clinch it. The Braves seem unwilling to go beyond four.
Melky Cabrera will make $3.1 million in 2010. I assume you can do the math.
The Giants could use an outfielder and have an intriguing player they’d likely part with: IF/OF Eugenio Velez. Mind you I would’ve never thought of this had I not drafted Velez for my fantasy team, but who wouldn’t trade Melky for Damon AND a modest prospect who’s stolen more bases over the last two years than any Brave except Nate McLouth?
