I guess the Braves way means making sacrificial lambs out of respected coaches and fan favorites. Here’s hoping TP and Eddie hook on with a real franchise, not the rudderless mall anchor the Braves have become.
Does anyone think TP wouldn’t have been a better manager than Fredi or Snitker?
Hey, Mike Maddux, widely regarded as one of the premier pitching coaches in the majors, is suddenly available. Never mind. The Braves are sticking with Chuck Hernandez.
But never fear. A New York investment firm has come to the Braves rescue. I’m sure they’ll be engaged owners.
Gamco Investors Inc., which is controlled by billionaire Mario Gabelli, now owns almost 3 million shares of Liberty Braves Group.
Equal parts stupidity and classless — that’s the Braves brainstrust, circa 2017.
