Instead of being bold, Braves play it safe with the hire of Brian Snitker



The Braves went 59-65 under Snitker and that was, apparently, enough.

The Braves have announced that interim manager Brian Snitker has been named as the full-time manager after leading the Braves to a 59-65 following the dismissal of Fredi Gonzalez. Despite positive interviews from Ron Washington and Bud Black, the Braves must have felt impressed enough in a man without much of a big league track record to run the club as they head into SunTrust Park.

The club looked good in the final stretch of the season, winning 12 of their final 14, but with growing expectations his moves, and more specifically his handling of the bullpen, will be met with higher expectations.

The players lined to support the first time manager which, to at least one national writer, proved to be a huge plus.
