Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?
So, apparently Paul Janish was in zero danger of being non-tendered at the deadline. The Braves actually signed him to a one-year contract earlier this year, and didn't bother to announce it until now.
After his shoulder injury, they wanted him to delay surgery so he could play in the post-season. Since that would affect his value as a free agent the next year (if he wasn't fully healed yet), they agreed to sign him for next year right away.
Nice to know they valued him so much, but jeez, they could have announced it earlier. I was afraid MLBTR was right and he'd be non-tendered.
