Default Braves Coppolella - Needs New Job

After 3rd consecutive 90 loss season, Coppy is gone:

To have such an under performing team at a brand spanking new stadium was what did it for him.

(I'm sure some will mention the Marlins - but really, nobody cares about FL baseball in FL)

I'm sure this investigation played a role in the firing.

Oops.

I did note to myself mid-season when there was all the speculation about whose system would be ranked #1, theirs or ours, that the big difference between our system and theirs was the wealth of high quality international signings they had. I wonder what that is all about.

Apparently, Coppy was not a likable person, at all.

I also heard on the local news that Snitker is most likely gone, but nothing official yet. Another Link

Remember when the Braves front office were highly regarded? It feels like a trillion years ago.

But at least their concessions are better, with the new, shiny ballpark, right?

What the Braves got busted with was much worse than the Red Sox in international signings. I do need to find out how this guy weaseled his way into a GM job.
Now there are some rumors that Dayton Moore might leave the Royals to take the job with Atlanta.

Wow, they might be losing Kevin Maitan as a result of Coppy's tomfoolery.

Linky

Finally, something interesting is happening with Atlanta baseball!
