Braves sign three

Atlanta avoided arbitration with SS Rafael Furcal and RPs Dan Kolb and Chris Reitsma by signing all three players to one-year contracts.

Although financial specifics for two of the three deals weren't released, it's believed Furcal's salary increased from $3.7 million to around $5 million; Reitsma should see an increase in salary from $950,000 to $1.5 million. Dan Kolb will be making quite a bit more in Atlanta than he did last year with the Brewers: his 2005 salary is two million bucks more than the $1.5 mil he got in Milwaukee.

And silly me was excited about the fifty-five cents per hour raise I got at work this year...
