Can't be too shocked. You think Tom Glavine has any interest in skippering out the string? The Braves have gotten come-on-out-to-the-ballpark-to-see-the-manager bad.

I'm sort of shocked.

That roster is just putrid...it can't be a performance thing. And Fredi always seemed decently respected around baseball...though apparently fans were unhappy with him. Well..."fans."

They have nobody after Freeman and Teheran. Markakis is like their third best player. That isn't good. However many wins they finish this season with, it will be more than I would have guessed.

Maybe he wanted out with pay? That is the only way I can see this guy did not get hosed.
