Damon and Melky, together again?

The Atlanta Braves have made an offer to Johnny Damon. According to Tyler Kepner of the NY Times, it's $2 million now, $2 million deferred. He also says the Yanks offered more and were turned down.

I wonder if Damon regrets turning down the Yanks. Though I suppose they could still come to terms.

The Yanks have signed Marcus Thames, who came up in the Yankees system (and, like Bubba Crosby and Andy Phillips, hit a home run in his first at-bat as a Yankee). But it's only a minor league deal. Theoretically, the Yanks might still have room for Damon.

Meanwhile, Pete Abe says Chien-Ming Wang has decided to sign with the Nationals. But Ben Goessling reports that Wang is not close to a decision yet. He says Wang would prefer to be reunited with Joe Torre, but the Dodgers don't seem very interested.
