Atlanta Braves extend contract of manager Brian Snitker

Coming off a third straight NL East title and getting to within one win of a spot in the World Series, the Atlanta Braves have extended the contract of manager Brian Snitker through the 2023 season.

The extension announced Friday includes a club option for 2024.

The 65-year-old Snitker took over the Braves on an interim basis in 2016 when the club was in the midst of a massive rebuilding job.

After going 72-90 in his first full season, Atlanta won the first of its three straight division titles in 2018.

Last season, the Braves won a postseason series for the first time since 2001, beating Cincinnati in the wild-card round and Miami in the division series before losing to the eventual World Series champion Los Angeles Dodgers in an NL Championship Series that went to seven games.

Braves sign Jason Kipnis to minor league deal with invite to spring training

The Braves have signed veteran infielder Jason Kipnis to a minor league deal with an invite to spring training. Kipnis first tweeted he was joining the Braves, while Jon Heyman added it was not a guaranteed big league contract. The terms of Kipnis’ contract should he make the big league roster were not immediately known.

Kipnis, who turns 34 in April, spent last year with the Cubs and performed decently after appearing in 44 games, batting .237/.341/.404 with a 103 wRC+ and 0.6 WAR. His strikeout rate was sky-high at 30% (compared to a career 19% average) although he also walked at the highest rate of his career (13.3%). Last season in Chicago was his first after spending nearly a decade in Cleveland.

Kipnis played second base exclusively with the Cubs during the shortened 2020 season with the exception of one game at first base.

Outfielder Marcell Ozuna returns to Atlanta Braves on four-year, $64 million deal

The Atlanta Braves are bringing back Marcell Ozuna, signing the slugger to a $64 million, four-year contract.

The Braves announced the deal for the 2020 NL home run and RBI leader on Friday night, less than two weeks before pitchers and catchers are set to report for spring training. The contract includes a fifth-year club option for $16 million that would take it to $80 million with a $1 million buyout, which would yield Ozuna $65 million in guaranteed money.

Ozuna took a gamble on himself after the 2019 season, turning down a $17.8 million qualifying offer from the St. Louis Cardinals, and signed a one-year, $18 million deal with the Braves in late January. The move paid off handsomely, as the slugger finished sixth in the National League MVP voting after leading the league with 18 home runs, 56 RBIs and 145 total bases. He was third in the NL with a career-best .338 batting average and .636 slugging percentage.

Braves re-sign Pablo Sandoval

The Braves re-signed infielder Pablo Sandoval to a one-year, minor-league deal Sunday. The contract is worth $1 million, if he makes the major-league roster.

Sandoval, 34, joined the Braves late last season and spent most of the time working out at the team’s alternate training site in Gwinnett. He appeared in only one game in the regular season — the finale — but made the postseason roster as a bench player. He had four plate appearances, going 0-for-3 with a hit by pitch.

Aaron’s death prompts call to change name: Braves to Hammers

Social media buzzed with calls to change the moniker to match Aaron’s nickname. There was even a fledgling online petition backing the idea.

“The renaming serves two important purposes: 1) It honors an icon who represented our city with grace and dignity for more than half a century, and 2) It removes the stain on the city of having a team name that dishonors Native and Indigenous people, especially given one of the greatest tragedies in American History, the Trail of Tears, began in the region the team calls home,” the petition said.

The Braves have steadfastly resisted calls to change their name, saying they view it as a tribute to Native Americans rather than a slur.

But the team did take steps during the 2019 playoffs to downplay symbols of its nickname after St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Ryan Helsley — a member of the Cherokee Nation — said he found the team’s “Tomahawk Chop” chant offensive.

Hall of Famer Henry “Hank” Aaron dies at 86.

Hall of Famer and one-time home run king Atlanta Braves legend Henry Louis “Hank” Aaron passed away this morning at the age of 86, CBS46 has learned. He leaves behind an indelible legacy on and off the baseball diamond.

...

It was the 1974 season that saw Aaron smash his way into the national consciousness. On April 8, 1974 Hammerin’ Hank, as he was known, crushed a 1-0 pitch from Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Al Downing over the left field wall at Fulton County Stadium and broke Babe Ruth’s long-time home run record of 714 home runs in a career.


—and we’ve lost another one.

What the Braves Can Tell Us About MLB’s Financial Losses in 2020

The Braves’ baseball revenue principally comes from national and local television deals plus gate receipts. We know the last number is zero. We also know that in a normal season, Atlanta makes $83 million in local television revenue. If we pro-rate that number for the season that was just played, we end up at around $33 million, leaving around $69 million to come from MLB’s central office. Assuming every team received roughly the same amount, we are talking about $2 billion comprised mostly of national television revenue. That’s also roughly the amount players were paid this season, including playoffs and benefits. While we can’t know for sure, it certainly seems likely that adding a bunch of national games during the week on FOX and FS1, combined with the additional Wild Card broadcasts on ESPN, ABC, and TBS, meant that MLB made roughly as much on national television deals as it would have in a normal season, and that those figures alone paid for player salaries.

Three months is not an entire year, though, and once we factor in the other nine months, we can start to see how MLB lost money. In the second quarter of 2020 (April, May and June), the Braves’ baseball revenue totaled $5 million; that same period brought in $198 million in 2019. Expenses went down from $146 million to $37 million, and while that drop helps offset the losses some, there’s still a huge gap between those quarters. A change is not the same as a loss, however, as the second quarter of 2019 saw $62 million of operating income (Adjusted OIBDA). Comparing revenues and expenses, the Braves’ had just a $26 million loss in what would have been the first three months of the season. Add in the $6 million in gains during the actual season, and Atlanta ended up losing $20 million over that period.

That figure doesn’t square with Manfred’s claims of losses five times that high, but there’s more to it than that. The money a team makes in the regular season helps cover its losses during the winter. In the first quarter, the Braves were down $25 million, and while the fourth quarter of 2020 isn’t over, the last two years have seen them down a total of $34 million in those periods. So if we speculate an operating loss (Adjusted OIBDA) of $20 million for the rest of 2020, the Braves would have been down $65 million for the entire year, though that’s without accounting for the potentially tens of millions extra in tax benefits due to those unusual losses.

Sources: Atlanta Braves, RHP Charlie Morton agree to 1-year, $15 million deal

Charlie Morton is in agreement on a one-year, $15 million deal with the Atlanta Braves, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

Morton is headed back to the team that drafted him in 2002—and gets the same money that Tampa Bay turned down when it declined its club option last month.

Morton, who led the Rays to the World Series with a Game 7 victory over the Houston Astros in the ALCS, became a free agent after Tampa Bay declined a $15 million option for the 2021 season.

Morton doesn’t have any no-trade protection or incentive clauses built into his deal with the Braves, sources told ESPN’s Buster Olney.

Braves add depth by signing Josh Tomlin to one-year deal

The Braves have reached a deal to bring Josh Tomlin back for the 2021 season, according to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal. The deal is worth just $1M for next year, with an option for 2022 at $1.25M with a $250K buyout.

Tomlin, who just turned 36, spent the last two seasons with the Braves eating valuable innings predominately out of the bullpen. He was effective yet again in the shortened season with a 4.76 ERA, 4.02 FIP and better-than-expected strikeout numbers. He is who he is at this stage in his career — a versatile innings eater who can save the bullpen and even make a spot start if called upon.

Perhaps more importantly than his on-field contributions, Tomlin has served as a valuable member of the Braves’ clubhouse while working with young pitchers on the roster. Earlier this summer, Tomlin encouraged Kyle Wright to change where he stands on the pitching rubber and the results were immediate. Wright would go on to pitch well in the final weeks of September and in his first playoff start in Game 3 of the NLDS, tossing six shutout innings against Miami.

These 6 teams now need a title most

Oakland A’s
Now that it is rumored that longtime head of baseball operations Billy Beane could be leaving the franchise, it would be a cruel irony if the A’s finally had their postseason breakthrough with him gone. For all the “Moneyball” love, the A’s had a 2-11 postseason record in the Beane era, ending with an American League Division Series loss to the rival Astros this year. The A’s have always felt like the team that was always this close to having That Special Year. But they never quite made it. If they ever bust through, here’s hoping they give him a ring anyway.

Inside the historic first inning that saved the Los Angeles Dodgers’ season

This outburst started at 5:07 p.m. local time with Mookie Betts chopping a ball down the third-base line and legging out a ball that a replay review turned into a single. Seager scored him with a double. Following groundouts by Justin Turner and Muncy, the Dodgers went double, walk, homer, homer, walk, pitching change, walk, single, hit by pitch, grand slam. In the inning, they hit five balls at 105-plus mph. They feasted on fastballs, with six of their seven hits coming off heaters. By the time 5:39 p.m. rolled around and Dayton struck out Will Smith, the Dodgers had turned those among the crowd of 10,664 at Globe Life Field wearing Braves jerseys into human mute buttons.

There was, as Atlanta learned last year, no answer for an inning like that: The Braves had experienced it in the first inning of their win-or-go-home Game 5 in the division series against the St. Louis Cardinals. Because this one came with a far better cushion—one more time, just in case you forgot, Atlanta still leads this series—it wasn’t nearly as painful. But one wouldn’t deem it pleasant, either.

“Quite honestly, we’re in better shape than if we grinded out a 7-5 loss,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said. “We wanted to win the game and all, but when you look, I can say the last four hours were not a lot of fun. If we had to lose the game, that probably was the best possible way.”

Dodgers vs. Braves: Why first pitches could be X-factor that decides NLCS

MLB teams hit .353 with a .597 slugging percentage on the first pitch this season. There is some selection bias here though, because when a player swings at the first pitch, it’s usually because he gets something good to hit. If everyone started swinging at the first pitch all the time, the league wouldn’t hit .353 on the first pitch much longer.

The Braves had the third-highest batting average (.399) and the highest slugging percentage (.788) on the first pitch during the regular season. Their 26 first-pitch homers led baseball and some of the individual numbers are incredible:....

These are two excellent offensive teams and it is not a coincidence they are two excellent first-pitch hitting teams. Walks are great, but the Braves and Dodgers go up to the plate ready to hit. When they get something hittable in the zone, they pounce. Working the count is a secondary concern. They’re up there to do damage.

Braves reportedly laying off several top scouts

One of the many trends of the 2020 MLB season has been reductions in front office and scouting positions across Major League Baseball. The Atlanta Braves have reportedly joined in laying off several top veteran pro scouts on Tuesday according to a report by USA Today’s Bob Nightengale.


The scouting profession was already thought to be in trouble as teams turned to video analysts for more of their scouting reports. The truncated regular season and the cancellation of the minor league season have put many scouts in jeopardy as teams have been forced to truncate spending.

The question for many of these scouts going forward is how many will be brought back? We have seen the player development model and scouting shift in recent seasons. While there is a happy medium that can be achieved, this could leave a lot of veteran scouts who worked their way through the old system on the outside looking in.

Braves’ 29 runs against Marlins second most in MLB since 1900

The Atlanta Braves scored 29 runs against the Miami Marlins on Wednesday night, falling one short of tying the major league record for most runs in a game.

Adam Duvall’s seventh-inning grand slam gave host Atlanta a 29-9 lead, which ended up being the final score.

The 29 runs are tied for the second most in a game in the modern era (since 1900), just shy of the Texas Rangers’ 30 against the Baltimore Orioles in 2007. The 1950 Red Sox and 1955 White Sox also scored 29 runs in a game.

“Pretty amazing,” said Freddie Freeman, who drove in six runs with three hits, including a two-run homer. “Hard to put into words, really, when you look up and see 29 runs on the board.”

A day after being shut out by the Marlins on four hits, the Braves broke loose. They had 23 hits, including seven homers, to score the most runs in Braves franchise history (Boston, Milwaukee and Atlanta) since 1900. They topped the old record by six runs.

Braves acquire lefty Tommy Milone from Orioles to bolster rotation

The Atlanta Braves acquired Baltimore Orioles left-hander Tommy Milone in a trade that could bolster their struggling rotation.

The teams announced the deal Sunday morning; Baltimore will receive two players to be named later.

Milone, 33, is 1-4 with a 3.99 ERA in six starts this season and has 31 strikeouts in 29⅓ innings. The 10-year veteran has a 3.08 ERA over his past five starts and should help stabilize an Atlanta rotation that has been plagued by injuries and inconsistency.

Moore: Age is just a number for Niekro and Moyer

Phil Niekro: The sparks is still there!

“Oh, yeah. I threw my last [Major League] pitch when I was 48, but I could have gone another year or two,” Niekro said, recalling his final season in 1987. It began with the Cleveland Indians, but he was traded near the end of the season to the pennant-hopeful Toronto Blue Jays.

After two rough starts, then-Blue Jays general manager Pat Gillick released Niekro and told Toronto reporters that he thought Niekro’s career was over.

“Since I have total respect for [Gillick], and also out of fairness to myself, I just took his word and decided that maybe he knew more about myself than I did, and that maybe he sees something that I don’t see, so I went by his words,” said Niekro, who made one final start with Atlanta that season. “After I retired, the next Spring Training, I got the fever. Then the next Spring Training after that, I got the fever.”

In fact, Niekro still has the fever.

Said Niekro, chuckling, but only a little, “I still feel like I can get guys out in the big leagues right now. My arm feels as good now as it did when I retired.”

...“I’ll throw some BP down there, so my arm is no problem,” Niekro said. “To stick around a long time, it’s a discipline thing for a player, where you have to stay healthy. You also have to be fortunate, just to spend any time in the big leagues. I’ve got no squabbles about anything. I just kick myself in the butt for not hanging around for another year or two.”

Braves re-sign infielder Jack Wilson

As an old pequod sod in the bar used to say to anybody named Jack…“#### you, Jack, I’m all right!!”

The Atlanta Braves have re-signed veteran infielder Jack Wilson to a one-year deal, the team’s website reports.

Wilson, 34, hit .243 with no homers, 11 RBIs in part-time duty with the Braves and Seattle Mariners in 2011. He was dealt to Atlanta on Aug. 31.

His biggest impact this season might be as a mentor/insurance policy.

Barring another acquisition, the Braves will start rookie Tyler Pastornicky at shortstop on opening day. The 22-year-old hit .314 with seven homers, 45 RBIs and 27 stolen bases between the Class AA and Class AAA levels in 2011, but he never has played in the majors.

BBPro:  Heartburn Hardball - Jack Morris in Motion

Morris, who was the face of the Detroit Tigers’ pitching staff for the entirety of the eighties before spending the early nineties hopping between the Twins, Blue Jays, and Indians, has every right to be thrilled at the news. And the rest of us, especially those who were too young to see him pitch, have every right to ask…why Jack Morris? Why now?

To answer that question, I decide to watch the most famous performance of his career, the game that proved once and for all that he was a true ace and a true winner.

....

The Twins will win 1-0 in the bottom of the 10th, winning the second World Series title in franchise history and solidifying Jack Morris’s place in baseball history.

And when it’s over, I will be more convinced than ever that Jack Morris is not a Hall of Fame pitcher.

Blasts from the Past

With the Hall of Fame results being announced today, we decided to take a trip down memory lane and dig up some old scouting reports from the Baseball America archives on some of the ballot’s notable candidates. . .

8. Barry Larkin, ss, 21, 5-11, 175, R-R
Larkin looked right at home in AA, hitting .267 for Vermont. He didn’t show power (one home run in 255 at-bats), but that will come. The key for him was just getting his feet on the ground, and he was not overpowered by the high level of competition (21 strikeouts in 255 at-bats). He will have good power for a shortstop.

6. Edgar Martinez, 3b, 25, 5-11, 175, R-R
Martinez’s discipline will produce runs. He’s averaged 70 RBIs the last four years. In the field, he’s solid, with good reactions and the soft hands of a middle infielder.

ajc: “Murph” surprised by low Hall of Fame votes, still hopeful

Kicking TBS: Live in Atlanta…with Dale Murphy.

Q: Probably not a lot of 50-something former MVPs can say they’ve been getting into Wilco and other bands, huh?

A: Well it’s been fun, and I think that’s the fun of Twitter – this intersection or cross-section of diverse people and interests, and you connect in ways … it’s been fun. In fact, I did a [online interview] with Peter Moylan, and he was asking me about music I listen to. And he and Chipper [Jones] were wondering who half the bands were that I named…. [Laughter.] I’m going to have a contest on Twitter and say the first hitter that walks up to [to the plate] with Wilco or something like that playing, I’m going to get him [a prize].

Q: OK, let’s change gears a bit. Murph, has this time of year become frustrating for you because of the annual Hall of Fame voting announcement? Or do you still allow yourself to be optimistic about your chances?

A: I’m always kind of optimistic. Not really frustrated, I think because my percentage [of votes] hasn’t really been knocking on the door, you know? I think if it’d been at 60 percent or something for five years, it might be different. I mean, I always try to be optimistic. I know my percentage is pretty low and you need 75. And I’m not really close. So in that way I’m not really frustrated.

To be honest, I thought my percentage would be higher over the years. It hasn’t been high. I tend to feel like I’ll get a bump this year. We’ll see. There’s been some talk about guys that played in the ‘70s and ‘80s, that there might be some revisiting of their careers [by voters], and I have some people that have been supportive. So we’ll see. I appreciate the support and I try to stay optimistic.

The Greatest Animated Sports .GIFs of 2011

32. Cliff Lee declines to run out his own grounder

I’m a firm opponent of the designated hitter rule, because just as I love to watch a punter try to scoop up a bad snap and try to throw it, or see a 7’1” center with no range try to chuck up a last-second three, I love watching pitchers hit.

Never will I come closer to seeing what it would be like if someone with my skill set tried to perform on a professional level. I mean, how nuts is this: in the National League, five to 10 percent of all at-bats are taken by men who, by everyone’s admission, are profoundly bad at it! It’s Dada performance art, and the ubiquity of such comical nonsense—over the course of a game, a season, and the history of baseball—is unrivaled by anything in any other sport.

This GIF features a delightful bonus: the catcher starts jogging to the dugout well before the play ends. It’s beautiful.

According to Wright, the patrol car collided with the Ford Expedition that was northbound on Capitol Avenue, hitting the SUV on the passenger’s side. The statement said the SUV then struck a utility pole.

Kathy Porter, 54, of Loganville, a passenger in the SUV, died in the crash, Wright’s statement to The Associated Press said. It added that Jeff Porter and two other passengers in the SUV- the couple’s 19-year-old son David and a friend, Courtney Ann Williams, 18, of Grayson—were taken to Grady Memorial Hospital for treatment of injuries. All three were released later Saturday.
