Will Ohman prefers the Braves

A comment by Atlanta Braves beat writer David O'Brien on his blog indicates that lefty reliever Will Ohman prefers to come back to Atlanta:

Just talked to Will Ohman [and he said the] Braves haven’t backed off him, still right there, one of six to eight teams interested. And he reiterated [Atlanta] is where he wants to be, if offers are equal, etc. He really liked everything about the place, team, fans.

I would like to see Ohman return for the next year or two, and I'd like to see the team pay to make that happen. He was far better than any situational lefty we've thrown out of the bullpen, save for two months of Ron Mahay, since Mike Remlinger and Chris Hammond in 2002.

I know we've got this O'Flaherty character and something called a Boone Logan as possible lefty setup guys, but they are not established major leage LOOGYs. Ohman held lefties to a .200 batting and a .571 OPS average last year -- that's like a team of Brent Lillibridges.
