Braves trade for pick #76 in 2016 draft

I’m really glad that baseball began allowing the trading of some draft picks. And so are the Braves. Atlanta used the acquisition of additional draft picks to their advantage last year by trading for two additional selections, one as a part of the major Craig Kimbrel trade with the Padres and the other in a pure salary dump trade with the Diamondbacks*. For this year’s draft...

Chipper Jones doesn’t rule out being Braves’ manager

The Atlanta Braves did the not-so-surprising thing earlier this week by firing manager Fredi Gonzalez after a league-worst 9-28 start. Brian Snitker has gone 3-3 since taking over for the team, but it looks like former player Chipper Jones could be in line for the job. Jones retired from the diamond following the 2012 season after spending 19 years with the team. He was the first...

Flight change warned Fredi Gonzalez of firing

Managing the Atlanta Braves this season is a fruitless job. With no talent and very little hope, the team is on track for well over 100 losses. So, there’s a good chance that Fredi Gonzalez was resigned to the fact that his days as Braves skipper were numbered. Still, he didn’t expect to learn the news this way. According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the front office...
