Braves make offer to Damon

@ajcbraves   Braves' interest in Damon has increased; they made
initial 1-yr offer (amount unknown) in recent days and had Chipper Jones contact him.


Other two tweets 

@ajcbraves Chipper wouldn't confirm team had him call
Damon, but said JD "Would make us a deeper team ... give us a legit leadoff hitter w/ some exp."

@ajcbraves Damon and Boras haven't backed off from demand
for two-year deal; Boras says he already has at least one 2-yr offer but won't name team.

Eh so it looks like the team might be seriously considering Damon after not much interest this whole offseason. Hopefully they dont do the 2nd year or if they do make the 2nd year a club option.

 

What the big deal about this would be is that if Damon was here that kind of could point in the direction that the team will take the patient approach with Heyward. I mean he could still start opening day and we trade one of Melky/Diaz but I seriously doubt they would do that unless Heyward had a MONSTER spring training.

 

I guess that would project our lineup to be like this

Damon LF

Prado 2B

Chip 3B

Glaus 1B

McCann/McLouth

Escobar SS

McCann/McLouth

Diaz/Cabrera RF

Pitcher
