BASEBALL: Robert Fick to the Braves

Robert Fick to the Braves. At $1 million, Fick's cheap, and the Braves obviously couldn't depend on 90-year-old Julio Franco and light-hitting pinch hitter Matt Franco to reprise their 2002 success. Fick doesn't really hit enough to be a regular 1B, although he's better than putting Vinny Castilla there. I hadn't realized he'd had 21 assists in the outfield, which is a very impressive figure.
