    Braves GM Resigns

    Uh oh. Apparently MLB was looking into him regarding some international signings. My guess is he did something illegal when he signed Maitan.

    Not good. Hope it doesn't set the braves back much. The rebuild was going nicely.

    They'll probably just lose international pool money or not be able to sign anyone internationally for a season. I don't think they'll ding them too bad.

    Unprecedented sanctions: MLB bans former Braves GM for life, makes 12 signees free agents – HardballTalk

    Major League Baseball has slammed the hammer down on the Atlanta Braves as the result of their violations of rules on the international free agent market.

    Former Braves General Manager John Coppolella has been placed on the permanently ineligible list — the same list Pete Rose is on — banning him from a job in baseball forever. His assistant, Gordon Blakeley, will be suspended for a period of one year. Each had already been dismissed by the Braves. Other Braves’ international baseball operations employees who participated in the misconduct could still be suspended as the league finishes its investigation.
