All Things Bubba

Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?

According to Braves beat writer David O'Brien, the Atlanta Braves have non-tendered Paul Janish (along with postseason starting second baseman Elliot Johnson and injured pitcher Cristhian Martinez).

Not really a surprise, but I think the Braves are kinda nuts. It's true Pena raked in the 50 games or so he played in this season, but his career numbers suggest he's not a better hitter than Janish or Johnson. He will likely be the cheapest, though, so there's that.

Janish is now a free agent, and can sign with any team. The Braves might still try to re-sign him for less money than he'd have gotten in arbitration. Or there's his old team, the Reds. They're in need of a backup shortstop.
