I could see a Braves/Rockies NLDS getting the day game treatment. Especially if the Cardinals win the WC game. They'll put Cards/Cubs in the primetime slot. Either way we know the NLDS begins on October 4th for all 4 teams. AL begins the day after. 

Yeah. I thought of that too. Cubs, Cardinals, Red Sox, Yankees, yep. Braves would get so screwed there and forced to play day games.

Toronto media saying Anthopoulos tried to trade Kemp to Toronto for Russell Martin. They ultimately couldn't agree on anything so he ended up in LA. 

Glad that didn't work out

Snitker almost quit last year due to Coppy

 

 

 

The Braves were considering parting ways with Brian Snitker at the end of the 2017 season, and the manager revealed to MLB.com’s Mark Bowman that he considered quitting out of frustration with then-Braves GM John Coppolella and president of baseball operations John Hart.  Snitker reached the point of contacting a clubhouse attendant back in Atlanta to say “Pack my things, I’m not coming back” after Coppolella criticized one of Snitker’s decisions during the Braves’ third-to-last game of the season, an otherwise meaningless matchup against the Marlins.  Snitker stuck around long enough, however, to see his situation unexpectedly change, due to Coppolella’s shocking resignation in the wake of a league investigation into international signing violations.  With Coppolella and, eventually, Hart both leaving the organization, Snitker formed a good relationship with new Atlanta GM Alex Anthopoulos and the rest is history, with the Braves winning the NL East.  Bowman’s piece is well worth a full read, as it details Snitker’s unlikely path to his first Major League managerial job after spending four decades in the Braves organization as a player, coach, and minor league skipper.
