Well, well, well.
Satan is alive and he has his evil grip on my beloved Atlanta Braves. Today, in a shocking turn of events, general manager and dark wizard John Coppolella resigned along with his assistant, Gordon Blakeley, and all hell broke loose.
The Devil laughs as Atlanta burns.
Why did Coppy resign, and take his assistant with him? It turns out that his dark wizard ways might have been darker than we knew. Coppy is accused of having broken a lot of international signing rules, at the very least. Speculation is that this centers on extremely young star prospect Kevin Maitan. For example…
That doesn’t seem hinky in the LEAST.
News continues to break, and it looks like there’s been a whole lot of evil deeds done dirt cheap down in the Braves Front Office. How does this affect Atlanta’s rebuild? Will they be able to keep Maitan (I doubt it)? How will the Braves be punished by the Commissioner?
I sure hope that fiddle made of gold was worth losing your soul, Coppy.
