News & Notes - 1/14/10

Written by Joe Lucia on .

Haven't done one of these in awhile...but hell, there are some minor tidbits floating around we should touch on. -Dave O'Brien of the AJC is reporting that the Braves have interest in Johnny Damon. I'm pretty sure I talked about this a week or so ago. I wouldn't mind bringing Damon in, provided the financials of the deal don't exceed $5 million or so for a year. If Damon is expecting 8 figures and multiple years, he shouldn't get it from the Braves. Signing Damon would allow Melky Cabrera to serve as the fourth outfielder while Matt Diaz gets most of the playing time in right field. Damon would be the primary starter in left, with Nate McLouth taking center. I'd be down with that, I guess. -Speaking of Melky Cabrera, the Braves avoided arb with him by agreeing to a $3.1 million dollar deal. Ryan Church got half of that from Pittsburgh. Facepalm. -The Braves signed Chris Resop to a minor league deal and invited him to spring training. Heh, Chris Resop. Remember him? I'm getting vicious flashbacks of Bobby putting him in left field so he could bring him back in the game. ESPN Gamecast absolutely crashed when that happened...always a fun time. Because I care...here are Resop's stats from Japan from the past season and a half! 2008 (Hanshin Tigers): 11 IP, 3 H, 2 BB, 12 K, NO RUNS~! 2009: I CANNOT FIND ANYTHING. Maybe he spent the year in Mexico? Regardless. Always a joy to see THE TOWEL back in the organization. I wonder what he's going to do to keep us entertained this season.
