This was from yesterday, but:

The Phillies on Thursday hired Dave Brundage as manager of the Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs. Brundage managed the Atlanta Braves’ Triple-A affiliate for the last six years. He has a career record of 1,086-1,028 (.514) in 13 seasons as a minor league manager.

Always good to see teams trying to emulate their betters.

    How many playoff games did the Braves win the last 2 seasons? LOL.

      Who cares how many playoff wins a team had, neither the Phillies or the Braves won the World Series (which is the goal).

    Hopefully the Phillies do not emulate the Braves. Last thing I need is a team that chokes out of the first round year in and year out. Seems to actually be more of an Atlanta sports trend, rather than restricted to the Braves only.

    Ahh good old douche bag craig taking shots again at Philly but i excpect nothing less from a horrible writer if hes even worthy of that. What have the braves done since we won in 08. No playoff series wins= nada. U cant live off history knucklehead.

    “What have the braves done since we won in 08. No playoff series wins= nada. U cant live off history knucklehead”

    interesting take, since that is exactly what you’re doing here. didn’t atlanta make the playoffs more recently than your high-priced dumpster fire?

    Will Braves pull the trigger and give the AAA job to Jamie Dismuke?
