Rafael Furcal is Heading Home to Atlanta

Rumor has it that Rafael Furcal is heading to Atlanta. Apparently, his desire to stay within familiar surroundings was too strong. He will soundly reject Oakland's offer.

In a stunning turnaround, Furcal spurned the A's for a three-year deal with the Braves worth approximately $30 million, according to major-league sources.

The deal, which will require Furcal to pass a physical, includes a vesting option for a fourth year that likely will push the potential value to $40 million.

Thank you Raffy for 3 years of hard work. Unfortunately, we had a couple of injuries that hampered your production, but I never doubted your skills and desire to win. You will be missed by the Blue Crew.


  1. Hold that. The Dodgers are still in the mix!!

  2. looks like Furcal just chose the Dodgers, according to Fox Sports Ken Rosenthal.
