No Pepper — Part of the BravesBeat Network

Brad is keeping up with the Braves transactions. I’ve heard about some of them but wasn’t able to find a source… The most interesting, to me, is Dave Nilsson. Nilsson, the former Brewer catcher/first baseman, has been out of American baseball for four years, mostly playing in his native Australia. He’s 33 now, and who knows if he has anything left, but he was a darned good hitter before, and had probably his best year (.309/.400/.554) in 1999, while catching 101 games. He could be an asset and is worth a flyer.
