The Braves just put out a press release; they’ve acquired Greg Norton from the Mariners for a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Norton, 35, certainly didn’t do anything wrong with the Mariners. He was 7 for 16 with a couple of doubles before they DFA’d him. He’s a solid switch-hitting bench bat, a nice pickup for Frank Wren. We might be able to give Norton a mulligan for his off-year in ’07; he was coming off knee surgery and finished the year with elbow surgery.
