According to David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Braves’ interest in Johnny Damon has increased in recent days, to the point where the club has sent the 36-year old outfielder a one-year offer. Further confirming this is Mark Bowman, who notes that the proposal includes some deferred money. The organization has also had the face of their franchise, future Hall of Famer, Chipper Jones, call Damon in order to talk up Atlanta in the hopes that he would consider joining them. Damon, however, while stating just yesterday that he would like to join the Braves, is still demanding a two-year contract and has yet to budge from that position. In fact, his agent, Scott Boras, is claiming a team currently has a two-year offer on the table for Damon, yet did not disclose that team’s identity (of course).

Given Damon’s lack of options, I seriously doubt Boras’ mystery team ploy will work. Everyone will call that bluff.
