The #Braves have fired manager Fredi Gonzalez


AAA Gwinnett manager Brian Snitker takes over (on an interim basis.)

Bench coach Carlos Tosca also fired; Terry Pendleton takes over for him.

Darn, I was hoping they'd give the job to Bo.

Finding out you?ve been fired is never easy, but imagine finding out the way that Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez did late Monday.

An hour or so after the Braves? 8-5 series-opening loss to the Pirates, a person familiar with the situation said Gonzalez received an email notifying him of his scheduled flight to Atlanta on Tuesday afternoon.

That was a bad sign, since the four-game series in Pittsburgh runs through Thursday.

Dumb move. Dude won't be out of a job for long. The rookies on that club are outplaying the veterans who've totally tanked..Aybar, Pierzynski, etc..

Very shabbily handled. It reminds me of when the Mets flew Willie Randolph to LA for a road trip, only to tell him he was fired when he arrived. They couldn't have told him beforehand and saved him the trip?

Speaking to reporters, per MLB.com's Mark Bowman, Snitker said Aybar "looked OK when he left, but he wasn?t speaking real well. Let?s just hope everything works out all right.?


This is what he gets for swallowing a bone.

Not that Muttley thinks there's anything wrong with that.

Was listening to XM this morning and Braves GM John Coppolella was on. I tuned in after his interview began and I thought I was listening to a 14 year old kid who was a first time caller asking a question. He sounded so scared I think he peed himself.
