Why Joe Mikulik should manage Braves for rest of 2016

The decision to fire Fredi Gonzalez has left the Atlanta Braves with interim Brian Snitker to manage the team. Now, perhaps the Braves are planning on using the rest of the 2016 season as something of an audition for Snitker but really, what sense does that make? You could generate some amalgamation of the best 10 managers in MLB history and they wouldn’t be able to do anything...

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...
