    Reports are very vague now. All it says is that he broke some kind of rule regarding international players. I'm going to follow the story, but reports are not telling much as it seem the story just broke.

    Meh. Coppolella's resignation, plus some draft picks and a fine will be the punishment. was never a huge fan of his, Braves really missed not keeping Dayton around.

    I didn't realize the extent of how disliked the guy is in the league.

    Wasn't liked by the braves either. Front office has had issues the last few seasons with people trying to undermine each other.

    Losing draft picks could be a big setback.

    Latin American baseball recruiting is one of the sleaziest sub-sections in professional sports. It's like a less organized, less profitable NCAA.

    I imagine it's tough for the MLB to keep track of all the player-farmers and off-the-book scouts down there. Coppa either did something really bad, or he simply got caught too close to some of those dubious characters.

    Well if the Braves are cheating, they must've read the How To book written by the South Carolina Gamecocks, because it ain't working.

    They are suppose to have the best farm system in baseball at the moment. The guy may have been a sleaze but he built up one of the most important parts of a baseball team. Not saying all of those guys will pan out, b/c they will not. but if a third of them do watch out...

    Well the guys he has will stay there. I am just guessing, @Starscream. might know more or some of the other baseball posters. I would think loss of draft picks. With the team being this bad would hurt, b/c all that would do is strengthen an already stacked farm....

    This is just another terrible thing to happen to the Braves lately, they must be getting desperate to try and pull this stuff. Very unprofessional and against the rules. That being said it is secondary to another atrocity from the Braves...........their name and mascot.


    Its 2017 and they still call themselves the Braves and use racist mascots/logos, its time we move on from this because its disrespect ful to Native Americans. Their history is ridiculous regarding this......

    How about a little respect shown to our Native Americans Atlanta........

    Braves probably are losing top infield prospect Kevin Maitan to free agency because of it.

    This happened to the redsox last year and they were banned from signing international players for 1 year.

    Honest question b/c I really do not know. They can actually loose players that are already signed and playing in the minors? Wow I had no idea. Not that I care what the Bravos do...

    Apparently. Sucks mostly because Maitan has been considered the best Venezuelan prospect since Miguel Cabrera.


    Oh and schooled learned me it lose, not loose.

    Big difference between the Braves and Indians names and logos. One is disrespectful AF and the other serves as a tribute to all Native Americans and something that they are proud of.................how can they not be proud of a 102-60 regular season and looking like 2 straight World Series appearances back to back.

    but no titles since 48..... That is not representing the Indians in a positive light. Hey let throw in the blown 3-1 series leave against the Cubbies off all teams last year...... I might ben pulling for the Tribe this post season, but I still am holding a grudge from last year debacle...

    Lost Titles are irrelevant in the past(last year,'95, and '97). With us its all about respect and paying tribute......

    Nope you guys got me. I like the way the Tribe plays as a team. Redemption time, and I think if the Cubbies do make it, Cleveland has the best shot to knock them off. Even though I believe LA comes out of the Nat'l league.

    As long as Liberty owns the Braves the franchise will never be anything like it was in the 90s...
