Evidently he didn't get along with some of the coaches over the years. Don't know specifics, but the worst incident (whatever it may have been) involved a coach who's not even with the team anymore.

That's it.
That's it? I was hoping he had robbed a bank or something with how secretive everyone was with this.

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

I somehow doubt that that's the only issue. Otherwise it wouldn't be this big a deal.

Whatever it is, he's basically gone now. Doesn't look like he'll be brought back (I doubt there'll even be an attempt made), so I don't know.

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

There may well be more, but until something bigger comes out I'm going to assume it's something of that nature, which would be consistent with what we've heard about Giles' antics being "disruptive" to the clubhouse.

Anyway, time to move on...

You guys want another crappy trade rumor?

The Atlanta Braves, who pulled out of a Gonzalez-for-Adam LaRoche deal at last week's winter meetings, might be back in the mix.

Under one scenario, the Pirates would ship Gonzalez and Castillo to the Braves -- who yesterday non-tendered second baseman Marcus Giles -- in return for LaRoche and right-hander Kyle Davies. The Braves then would flip Gonzalez to the Yankees for reliever Scott Proctor and outfielder Melky Cabrera.

What? That would be terrible.

Not gettin anything for Giles was bad enough.

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

I think the deal for Gonzalez is dead, we won't re-visit it.

If there's a trade to be made, it's the Baldelli deal IMO.

I never put anything past Schuerholtz. More than likely both deals are dead. He always does stuff that catches us completely off guard.

Re: 2006 Atlanta Braves Discussion

Anyone care about John Rocker anymore? Didn't think so.

Anyway, someone interviewed him (for some reason), here's what he had to say about our GM:

"Yeah. [Braves general manager] John Schuerholz traded me. He's a real *******. I'm gonna absolutely crucify him in my book. The credibility that guy receives for the Atlanta Braves dynasty ... he is an imbecile. Every player who took that team to the playoffs were people who were already there. All his good acquisitions were no-brainers. Scheurholz tries to take all the credit, but he's a complete moron. It's amazing he gets so much credit for it. We had a bad arbitration case, he and I. He just sat there and mother****ed me to death, you suck, you're horrible, and I lost the case. I never spoke to him again. He'd walk right by me and say, "Hi, John," and I'd just ignore him. He has the worst case of Little Man Syndrome I've ever met. He's about 5-foot-5. He's a piece of ****."
