Braves to name Alex Anthopoulos as next GM, reports say

14 November, 2017, 02:02 | Author: Hope Soto

Anthopoulos and Jim Hendry were the top remaining candidates, after a source said the Braves moved away from their top target, Royals senior vice president and general manager Dayton Moore, who would have needed permission from the Royals to become Atlanta's president of baseball operations. Joel Sherman of the New York Post first reported that Anthopoulos was getting that job. He originally joined Toronto following the 2003 season as a scouting coordinator and earned a promotion to vice president, baseball operations and assistant general manager in 2006 before taking over as GM on October 3, 2009. There is said to be no evidence directly implicating Hart in the rule breaking found to this point, but he was in charge when it occurred and there's a question of a management issue.

With the Braves potentially subject to penalties once MLB concludes its investigation into activity conducted within the domestic Draft and on the worldwide market, there is obviously a need to hire a strong leader who can improve morale and also build trust around the league. Blakely recently interviewed again at Major League Baseball headquarters, and Major League Baseball powers are continuing to go over emails and other potential evidence. Shapiro later hired Ross Atkins to replace Anthopoulos.

Lyft will launch in Toronto in its first push outside the US
The move follows the controversial launch of rival Uber in Toronto a few years ago, which saw protests by taxi drivers. The company is also beginning to sign up potential drivers now in advance of its rollout of its service.


Anthopoulos, 40, began his baseball career with the Montreal Expos as a media relations intern in 2000 before transitioning to global scouting and serving as Montreal's coordinator for amateur and professional scouting for the 2002 and 2003 seasons.

During his tenure with the Jays, Anthopoulos was instrumental in acquiring Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion, both of whom had their best years in Toronto. Coppolella, who was forced out, did a terrific job of player procurement, and the Braves are stacked at the minor league level.
