Braves to GM Candidates: Apply only if you have no problems with a manager who makes a lot of bad decisions.

I agree, but I'm not sure Heyman is saying any more than Fredi won't be fired now.

A sign of a messed up organization is announcing that you're keeping a questionable manager before you hire the guy who ostensibly should have a big say in that decision.
"Questionable" is a word which here means "appallingly crappy"

Why would they say anything, if this was the case? If John Hart is one of the people looking for the new GM, has also been OFFERED the GM job, and is the ACTING GM but is still leaking Fredi is safe, then why would we assume a new GM would have freedom here?

Agreed, just giving the most positive possible view of Fredi. At best, he's questionable. He obviously might be far worse than that.

But in no way is he decent enough that his fate isn't in the hands of a new GM coming in. That's ridiculous.

Braves refused to lose just 7 times in 25 games in September.

I like the bird noises someone was making the last time through.  :hysterical:

There ought to be an NL East hate site where fans can promote taunts directed at each of the teams. 4 team fanbases (well, that counts the Marlins as having a fanbase) should do the Kimbrall next year.  Throw donuts at Ryan Howard or just adjust cups for Papelbon.  I'm sure they are going to want to do something about the Nats (Harper and Werth are tauntable, and mocking the untuck for blown saves would have worked this year).

  • 2016 - the year that everything changed, again.

I'm not much of a fan of taunting, I've often observed it having the opposite impact.

So have I! I could hear the guy in Seattle ripping Bryce all at bat the day he hit that giant bomb.

Hope you weren't liking Bo Porter on MLB Network. He just joined the Braves as 3B Coach.

Uh ... is this true?

Bo was Fredi's thirdbase coach in Miami

From this day on, Porter is dead.     He no longer exists.
