Two pieces of news and a coupon code today...
1. Bobby Cox hammered out a one-year contract extension today with the club, so he'll be managing through the 2009 season. According to Skip Caray, the organization would have given him a longer contract, but Bobby only wanted to do one year and see how he feels after that.
2. Brayan Peña was designated for assignment today. (See Wikipedia for a good explanation of the topic.) I love having him around, and I'm sure some team will snatch up a switch-hitting bilingual catcher. Good luck, Brayan. :(
3. If anyone's looking to make a Braves Clubhouse Store purchase this weekend, I received an email today saying...
