Fredi Gonzalez Officially Named Atlanta Braves Manager As Bobby Cox Looks On

Sitting next to Bobby Cox at the former (whoa) manager’s final press conference, Fredi Gonzalez was officially introduced as the next manager of the Atlanta Braves. He’s signed a three-year deal with an option for a fourth year.

Martin Gandy of Talking Chop has more on the staff Gonzalez will be working with:

The Braves will retain Roger McDowell as the pitching coach, Eddie Perez as the bullpen coach, and Brian Snitker as the third base coach. Terry Pendleton will be retained, but will become the first base coach and infield instructor. Carlos Tosca will follow Fre-Go from Florida to Atlanta and become the Braves new bench coach. Chino Cadahia and Glenn Hubbard will not be retained. The club will undergo a search for a new hitting coach.

Martin Gandy of Talking Chop says:

I guess that settles it. I like the choice. He’s a Braves kind of guy, pretty much every player already likes the guy, he’ll fit right in and retain that Coxian style in the Braves clubhouse.

So far Talking Chop’s comment section agrees.

More to come.
