Fredi Gonzalez Reportedly To Be Named Braves Manager, As Expected

If reports are accurate, we can look forward to seeing a man after Bobby Cox’s own heart leading the Braves next season.

Even before the Marlins fired Gonzalez, an act that irked Cox into publicly criticizing Florida ownership, Jeff Schultz was calling for him to be offered the job.

We’ve long expected Gonzalez to be the frontrunner for the job, but nobody foresaw the news hitting this quickly.

Gonzalez guided the Fish to two winning records in his four years in Miami. He should have more to work with in Atlanta, as Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria is famously thrifty.

We’ll have more to come soon and as more news breaks.
