Atlanta Braves Fire Manager Frank Wren for Missing Playoffs

News broke that General Manager of the Atlanta Braves Frank Wren has been fired, less than 24 hours after the team had been eliminated from the race to the playoffs. After releasing the news on Wren, team president John Schuerholz announced that MLB network analyst John Hart will be the new interim General Manager for the team. He has since then scheduled a news conference at Turner Field. Wren was in his 15th season with the team. He accepted the position in 2007 after Schuerholz left the job in order to be team president. Although he did take the Braves to the playoffs three times while being GM, he also suffered much criticism surrounding his costly decisions regarding players. One of those players is second baseman Dan Uggla who was released in July, despite still owing the team $13 million this season and the next. Another player is center fielder B.J. Upton who was an even bigger bust with three years remaining on a $75.25 million five year contract. There is no definitive answer as to what led to Wren’s termination at the moment, but the Braves have already formed a three person team of Schuerholz, Hart and retired manager Bobby Cox to find a new GM.
