What do you make of this??

That the Braves couldnt or havent tried to sign him to an extension. He will be making at least 15M a year in an extension, after this arbitration number.

He will most likely be heading to FA next offseason.

Is this good news for the Orioles in trying to sign him when he becomes a FA? You know both New York teams and Boston will be slight favorites in signing him, IMO.

Yes, it is good news for us (assuming we want him) in that it's only one year. Had it been any longer he would have been giving up free agency years. He will still be a FA after 2008.
