    Coppy to Resign

    Well this sucks. Was responsible for some terrific acquisitions. @death2redemptions @cgilmo

    BREAKING: #Braves GM John Coppolella expected to resign today, sources tell The Athletic. Resignation of Coppolella believed to stem in part from issues with #Bravesí talent acquisition in Latin America. Special assistant to the GM Gordon Blakeley also involved in issues #Braves are facing, sources tell The Athletic.

    Seems like this might be some blowback from the Maitan thing...

    There are rumors that the braves had a deal in place with maitan when he was 14...it sounds like they are being looked in to for some of these issues.

    lol, I just posted this in the Braves thread because I couldn't find any thread created about it yet. Apparently I hadn't refreshed my browser. So once again, Jaypers beats me to the punch.

    I have no idea what infractions or rules were broken, other than it had something to do with the international market but it's a shame because I liked the guy as our GM.
