The Braves, poised to make their first significant off-season addition, are closing in on an agreement with free-agent right-hander John Thomson.

The deal, believed to be in the two-year, $7 million range, could be announced as soon as Tuesday. Thomson, 30, would replace departed free agent Greg Maddux, joining a rotation that includes Russ Ortiz, Mike Hampton and Horacio Ramirez.

john thomson was always an above average pitcher, just usually on bad teams.. he will most likely be the braves 4 or 5 and is def gettin bumped up on most peoples lists.. expecting 12-15 wins with an era around 3.9-4.1 isnt too far of a reach in my opinion.. he always has a prety good ratio and if healthy will pitch around 180-200 innings.. of course hes no maddux but a cheap replacement that should produce

i couldnt have said it better myself.. just because i think thomson is solid doesnt mean he makes up for the loss of maddux .. or sheffield, castilla, lopez and fick.. but im sure glad they kept julio franco and his 46 year old body .. lol .. we all know that the mets dont have much of a chance this year but they wont look as bad in the east this year as they would have in the past

A lousy half million. DOH!

Texas last offer was $6.5 million over two years, and he's going to sign with Atlanta for $7 million. That stinks. It's not even a full half million difference since we don't have a state tax in Texas.

Yuck! :-P

Nope, no state tax in Texas. That's why some deals are so dumb. Remember the deal Randy Johnson got with Arizona? I believe it was $44 million? Texas offered $42 million for the same number of years (I think the numbers are right, but I'm positive that the Rangers offered $2 million less). Guess what? RJ would have made more money here because of no state tax. 8-o

One of these days, the players will realize that. I blame Ranger's management for not making sure that the free agents they are talking to know about it as well. :-/
