    John Coppolella gets lifetime ban from baseball

    Major League Baseball has instituted a lifetime ban on former Braves general manager John Coppolella, according to an announcement from commissioner Rob Manfred. The heavy punishment comes as the league moves to punish his former organization for amateur signing infractions during his tenure as GM. Coppolella had already resigned from the Atlanta organization.

    Braves lose 12 prospects too. Hurts but they still have one of the best farm systems.

    Execs from around the league agree that every team does what the Braves were doing, but the Braves got caught. The reason the Braves got caught, is because their former GM was such a jerk to everyone, someone inside the organization told on him.

    The loss of a couple of years worth of international signings is significant. Even more significant is the penalty going forward that will effectively shut them out of the international market until 2020. That will put a heavy toll on their farm system in regards to being able to replentish it if they trade prospects the next couple of seasons.
