Braves GM Alex Anthopoulos discusses upcoming offseason

Braves GM Alex Anthopoulos held court with the media Monday after the team announced a new deal for manager Brian Snitker. David O’Brien of The Athletic discussed many of the comments in a subscription post that’s well worth a full read for fans. We’ll run through some key items here. The chat was interesting on several levels, even if the veteran executive was cautious not to divulge anything that might tip his hand. Anthopoulos touched upon some of the competing priorities facing the...

Mike Foltynewicz, Kevin Gausman headline Braves’ arbitration eligible players

Before the 2018 offseason swings into high gear, the Atlanta Braves will have several decisions to make with its current roster. While Atlanta will enter the offseason with significant money to work with, part of that will go towards arbitration raises for several of the team’s current players.

The Braves currently have 10 players who will be arbitration eligible. MLB Trade Rumors has released its annual projection of arbitration salaries for the upcoming offseason. Below is a snapshot of...

Brian Snitker has earned the opportunity to further evolve as a manager

Some managers reject that the game is changing and continue to stay set in their ways. Brian Snitker doesn’t appear to be one of them.

Following the 2017 season and the John Coppolella-related chaos that ensued shortly after the final pitch of that season was thrown, Brian Snitker and his future as the Braves manager was up in the air. After seeing reports of the discord between the then-GM and current manager, it’s clear that had Coppolella not run afoul of Major League Baseball then...

Was giving Brian Snitker an extension a good idea?

The Braves gave manager Brian Snitker an extension as was widely expected. The question we pose to you is: should they have?

Unless you have been living under a rock today, you will have likely heard that the Braves gave manager Brian Snitker a two-year contract extension with a club option for another year. This was hardly a surprise as Snitker was at the helm of a team that won the National League East and made significant gains in the wins column.

However, it isn’t open and shut that...

2018 Atlanta Braves player review: Matt Wisler

The former Braves pitcher is now the Cincinnati Kid.

The 2018 season was finally the end of the line for the relationship between Matt Wisler and the Braves organization. He was the crown jewel prospect who came over to the Braves in the shocking pre-Opening Day trade in 2015 that sent Craig Kimbrel to the Padres. He eventually made his major league debut with the Braves in that same season and he took his lumps for a couple of seasons as a young pitcher on a rebuilding team.

By the time...

Chuck Hernandez will not return as the Braves’ pitching coach

There will be at least one change on the Braves’ coaching staff as Chuck Hernandez will not return.

Earlier today it was reported that the Atlanta Braves were giving manager Brian Snitker a two-year extension with a club option for a third year. This was not surprising given the team’s performance in 2018 and the fact that the players on the roster love Snit. While it isn’t a given that Snitker is going to win NL Manager of the Year, he is one of the leading candidates and it would be...

Braves dismiss pitching coach Chuck Hernandez

The Braves announced to reporters this morning that pitching coach Chuck Hernandez will not return in that role for the 2019 season (Twitter links via Gabe Burns of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution). The rest of the coaching staff is returning on new two-year contracts, which match the length of the extension inked by manager Brian Snitker earlier this morning. MLB.com’s Mark Bowman had previously tweeted that Hernandez’s spot on the coaching staff could be in jeopardy. Though the Braves...

Braves extend Brian Snitker

 The Braves announced Monday morning that they’ve signed manager Brian Snitker to a two-year contract extension that includes a club option for the 2021 season. MLB.com’s Mark Bowman had indicated earlier Monday morning that Snitker’s widely anticipated new contract was expected to be announced (Twitter link). Snitker, 63 on Wednesday, took over as manager on an interim basis back in 2016 after the Braves dismissed Fredi Gonzalez on the heels of a 9-28 start to the season. While he...

2018 Atlanta Braves Player Review: Jose Bautista

Joey Bats’ tenure in Atlanta was a short one.

While Johan Camargo eventually established himself as the Atlanta Braves’ everyday third baseman, the season certainly didn’t begin that way. With Camargo injured to start the season, Ryan Flaherty logged a large number of at bats early on. For what it is worth now, the Braves didn’t seem to be convinced that Camargo was the long-term solution back in April, which led them to give an opportunity to Jose Bautista. (If you recall, Camargo...

Sure: the Braves are loaded with pitching.  Yet something still feels like it’s missing, even viewed from that vault.
