Braves News’s Mark Bowman takes a look back at four big moments from Brian Snitker’s career as Braves’ manager. If not for MLB’s investigation into the Braves on the international market, Snitker would have likely been replaced by former GM John Coppolella. However, Coppolella was fired and received a lifetime ban, the Braves extended Snitker and Atlanta has since won four straight division titles and a World Series championship.

Also at, a roundtable discussion on former Braves closer Billy Wagner’s Hall of Fame candidacy.
