Former Brave updates

Things may get interesting in Los Angeles during Spring Training:

"Not to start a controversy," Drew told a Thursday press conference to announce his five-year contract, "but I'd like to start in center field. Playing behind Jim Edmonds [in St. Louis] and Andruw Jones [in Atlanta], there was no opportunity. You tip your cap and carry their Gold Gloves home for them. If the opportunity presents itself, I'd like to give it a shot."

I wonder what a certain feller already occupying center field for the Dodgers thinks about this? Has anyone pointed out to J.D. that Milton Bradley is CRAZY? As in fightin', spittin', yellin', throwing-beer-bottles-at-your-head kee-ray-zee?

In other former Brave news, Andres Galarraga has signed a minor league contract with the New York Mets and will be invited to Spring Training. Andres is currently third on the list of oldest players in the MLB; he's 42. Only Julio Franco (46) and John Franco (44) are older. (No relation between those Franco boys, by the way.)
