Those Rival Executives. Always taunting me like this. Rosenthal, after reminding us that the Braves are 1-10 this spring, reports:
Gonzalez, unlike the Boston Red Sox’s Terry Francona, survived his team’s collapse, in large part because the Braves value stability.
A poor start, though, could alter the equation. Rival executives believe that Gonzalez, entering the second year of a three-year contract, already is on probation.
I’m not going to get my hopes up that my least favorite Braves manager in many years might get canned. Because the thing about the Braves I dislike even more than Fredi is its corporate ownership. And the Braves’ corporate ownership likely wouldn’t approve getting rid of Gonzalez if it meant having to pay two managers at once. Would mess up the ledger that someone spent a good bit of time making look all neat.
