@ajcbraves Tweets that Fredi Gonzalez Will Be the Next Braves Manager

Well, there ya go. Considering the rumors and the way the players have talked on the record this is almost certainly true.

Gonzalez was the Braves’s third base coach before being hired by the Marlins in 2007. He went 276-279 with the fish, his best year being 2009 when they finished 87-75 and finished second in the division. He was fired in June of this year after a public spat with Marlins superstar Hanley Ramirez. The team was 34-36 when he was fired.
