How to get traded in Atlanta: be signed or drafted by Frank Wren. I mean, Albies also being mentioned in trades. Ac…
I used to be pretty decent at predicting Frank Wren moves. But with John Coppolella, I got no clue!
All these prospects people talk about were signed by Frank Wren. Acuna, Albies, Camargo, Sims, etc. Not by Coppy.
With all these rumors the will soon be back in the Frank Wren days of prospects. JOY.
I get that Ervin Santana is old, but Frank Wren had to beg ownership for money to sign him before the 2014 season lol.
Dang Brandon, did the rehire Frank Wren to run their parking shuttle service??
Just remember, Acuna was signed by Frank Wren. Same as Albies and Camargo. But they won't acknowledge it. 🤷‍♀️
Frank Wren just walked by me at the ball game. Deal w Red Sox imminent?
This has Frank Wren written all over it...
fans should be thanking Frank Wren for Acuna. And Albies. And also Camargo. But they won't. 🤷‍♀️
I mean that would be the price 😁 I just think that John Henry has to think they hav…
Anyone in Chicago have eyes on Frank Wren?
You know Frank Wren still works for the Red Sox and was part of the Teheran signing for the Braves... Devers Groome & Cosart to the Braves?
Frank Wren is no longer with us BC he didn't align with usual ATL FO brass. We did however…
Lol Braves fired Frank Wren for stupid trades like that oh guess what he…
Whenever I see Craig Kimbrel pitching for another team, I get angry all over again. Curse you Frank Wren and front office!

Yep! Hursh was 31 overall and Judge was 32. Thanks a lot Frank Wren! 😂
Frank Wren, the gift that keeps on giving
he was 32nd and we took Hursh... whiff, thanks Frank Wren
Can't understand why Frank Wren didn't keep his job...
I don't care about Frank Wren's financial garbage.
Frank Wren had a knack for finding guys like Camargo. Just because they don't get "hype" doesn't mean they're not productive players.
All these fans who bashed Frank Wren 24/7 never give him credit for Johan Camargo, Ozzie Albies, or Ronald Acuna.
The legacy of Frank Wren lives through Johan Camargo, Ozzie Albies, and Ronald Acuna. (In some ways, Alex Wood).
Hey, Camargo is a fun player. I'm glad Frank Wren signed him, Acuna, and Albies.
The legacy of Frank Wren: BJ Upton, Chris Johnson, Kenshin Kawakami, Derek Lowe, and Dan Uggla. How do he sti…
Frank Wren still work the Red Sox? Doesn't seem to have a fan in either Chipper Jones or Bobby Cox.
Chipper Jones claims Bobby Cox nearly quit as Braves manager in 2008 because of Frank Wren
BJ Upton, Jair Jurrjens, Dan Uggla, *** just name a Frank Wren player and you've got a comparison.
I haven't agreed with every ATL decision. But praise God Frank Wren gave Freddie the big deal and not J-Hey.
The hiring of Brian Snitker as manager is poetic justice for what former GM Frank Wren did to him in 2013.

Yes, which was why it also wasn't hard to say goodbye to Frank Wren.
He probably has a secret one like Frank Wren did when he was with the Braves & follows a bunch of fans to keep tabs.

You remember Frank Wren? Do you remember how many bad deals he had? Uggla, BJ, Derek Lowe...
is Frank Wren advising the Angels nowadays?
just another over valued prospect from the Frank wren era. Would have loved for him to have been Chipper's replacement tho.
Rest up, that mess has gone nation wide.

Great show topic- who was worse- Billy Knight, Frank Wren or Dimitroff?
Jesus officially blessed all the new songs last night 🙏
Thomas Dimitrof is the same as Frank Wren. Good but not good enough to build a championship roster.
I don't wanna go back to work. I wonder if Frank Wren ever felt this way...
it was seriously one of the most delicious things I've had in awhile, taking one for lunch tmrw
I think a leftover black bean burger will be really good, Molly. Yum! :o)
You got this. It'll be straightforward from here on out. Fingers crossed!

The Braves not wanting to give Heyward more $$$ than Freddie should tell you all you need to know about Frank Wren.

Frank Wren would've asked for La Stella back
Sad part is Frank Wren abused you so much, it wasn’t hard to believe they’d been swindled.
Thanks Frank Wren. I hope the green monster falls on you.
senior vice president of baseball operations Frank Wren was Atlanta’s general manager in 2008, the year Kimbrel was drafted.
the apparently musta thought it was a fine idea, then. they just hired Frank Wren. maybe they'll hire Rizzo too.

Uggla and Frenchy have huge games against Braves - Somewhere Frank Wren is popping a bottle of champagne
so maybe having Frank Wren write the lineups wasn’t so bad? I joke, but what in the world is this guy thinking. Over management.
If nothing else, this first month should make you appreciate how good Frank Wren was at building a good bullpen.
Frank Wren made several mistakes that cost him his job. One of the worst was letting Tim Hudson go.
At least John Hart doesn't seem as arrogant as Frank Wren
As he continues to clean up the mess left by Frank Wren.
Trying to be positive by reminding myself that Frank Wren would have given Jim Johnson $50 million.
Man Braves fans fed up rightfully. Frank Wren screwed that team over royally after Bobby Cox kept them in contention all those years
BTW, Bobby Cox spent 25yrs building the minor leagues into one of the strongest in baseball. It took Frank Wren seven to destroy it.
I vote yes on trading, Bj Upton, Fredi Gonzalez, and Frank Wren for Andrew McCutchen

Thankfully 2014 version of the Atlanta Braves is coming to a end with a sub 500 season; Frank Wren has been canned for the poor ball players he hired with the likes of the Uptons and Dan "Flim Flam Man" Uggla whose contract they are eating. i am not sure if Fredi should go but He needs to revamp and get a new staff if he stays. I do predict at least 2 more seasons of the same type season unless major changes are made. Many Brave fans are fickle, and will turn on the Braves in a skinny minute, but I will still watch and hope for that elusive World Series title one day.
Bobby Cox, Frank Wren and Fredi Gonzalez don't swing bats! Offense was pitiful this year, put it in the players!
Yeah if Frank Wren were John Schuerholz, Wren trades for David Price or something this summer as Braves miss the playoffs anyway
So now that Frank Wren was fired, does that mean Dayton Moore and Ned Yost can move back to Atlanta now?
So, Frank Wren wanted Fredi Gonzalez gone, but Bobby Cox pushed to keep him. I guess we know who's really in power at 755 Hank Aaron Dr.
Lets throw gas on the fire in wake of Frank Wren's firing. Some signees: Derek Lowe, Kenshin Kawakami, Dan Uggla, BJ Upton.
Frank Wren was also responsible for the horrible contracts given to Derek Lowe and Kenshin Kawakami.
Little tidbit that a lot of people keep forgetting: Frank Wren is responsible for Fredi Gonzalez. He hired him too.
Frank Wren finally gets the boot after BJ Upton, Dan Uggla, and Derek Lowe all were given WAY too much money.

Atlanta Braves general manager Frank Wren calls in to Hot Stove to discuss his team's additions this offseason
Peter Gammons himself had this to say about the Orioles front office. If true, we are in SERIOUS, SERIOUS trouble: "Frank Wren recalled his days as Oriole GM and contended that when a deal was consummated and Angelos decided he didn't like it, his way of reversing agreements was to pull out the medical card" “That’s how Peter plays general manager,” said Braves GM Frank Wren, who signed Hernandez as Orioles’ GM and was fired after one season, in a 2006 interview with the New York Times. “He uses medical reasons to kill or change a deal if he doesn’t like it.”

No disrespect to Floyd, but really Frank Wren? We need a big time move. MT: in negotiations with pitcher Gavin Floyd.

Gavin Floyd is NOT the answer, Frank Wren are you kidding me??
The Braves believe they’ve plucked another potential gem from the minor-league free-agent ranks: sidearmer Luis Vasquez.The right-handed reliever has created buzz in the Dominican Winter League, posting a 1.15 ERA in 20 appearances for Licey, with 19 strikeouts and three walks in 15-2/3 innings. Vasquez has allowed only four hits, and his fastball has been clocked as high as 97 mph.Vasquez’s miniscule 0.47 WHIP (walks-plus-hits per inning pitched) was the lowest among an army of 35 pitchers who worked at least one inning for Licey, including plenty with major league experience such as Chris Narveson, Jose Contreras, Jose Dominguez, Guillermo Mota and Juan Cedeno.The 6-foot-4 Dominican will be 28 in April. He didn’t start his pro career with the Dodgers until he was 21.After posting a 7.27 ERA in 43 appearances (one start) at Double-A and Triple-A in 2012, he dropped his arm slot and saw his performance improve dramatically, although he still needed to improve his control.Vasquez had a 2.52 ERA in 25 ...
Why is Frank Wren not making moves for Braves this offseason? Other contenders building, Braves shrinking.
Frank Wren get Bonafacio out of KC. need wheels
Frank Wren signs another gem. Best GM with an $80 million payroll in baseball.
I saw Luis Vazquez pitch as a side armer last year. He was not routinely throwing in the mid 90s Frank Wren
BREAKING: Frank Wren trades Liberty Media and Jordan Schafer for Arturo Moreno. Uses new money to sign Maddux out of retirement
If Frank Wren trades him he should be fired IMMEDIATELY
If not for ego, Frank Wren should have been in on Infante at $7.5 per. Perfect fit at 2B, utility, and top of order.
Frank Wren is slow playing this offseason, waiting for teams to get desperate. It's a risk, but it worked out last yr. Got J-Up w/o giving
Way to go Frank Wren.I'm jumping for joy now. At least my other two teams have done good stuff this offseason.
Frank Wren just won the off season with this signing

I'll give Frank Wren a mulligan & consider the Winter Meetings a success as long as he dumps Uggla. Do it!
Frank Wren has a great business mind but I truly believe the Braves would be better off without him

Well, the Winter Meetings are nearing an end and everybody seems to be hard at work bettering their team, so will somebody please wake Frank Wren and Freddie Gonzalez up and tell them to get the bat out of their *** and do something already, After all it didnt take you long to pull off one of the most bone-head moves I ever seen in the 1st round of the playoffs last year when you left Dan Uggla off the post-season roster and replaced him with that no-talent bum Elliott Johnson. I think that maybe Frank Wren's next move should be to FIRE Freddie Gonzalez.
I agree with the AJC story Frank Wren should not trade the future for a pitcher who will be gone in a year.
Frank Wren's comment around player price tags make it sound like the are shopping at Wal-Mart while everyone else is at Home-Depo

Colon to the Mets. Is Frank Wren marooned somewhere? This is getting ridiculous
Frank Wren says the biggest shock of the Winter Meetings has been "sticker shock" with contracts free agents are receiving.
And you can thank Frank Wren for the lack of money to improve this team with those two money drains called J. Upton and Uggla.
Nice to see Frank Wren decided to take an early Christmas vacation this year...

Frank Wren, go get David Price..Braves have the ponies in Minor, Medlen & Julio. Just need that stallion to lead them & get a World Series!🏆
is frank wren even at the Winter Meetings? I get it no big moves but how about a move instead of a loss this winter.
Let's just hope Frank Wren hasn't lost his mind.
Has it been confirmed that Frank Wren is actually in attendance at the Winter Meetings?
Clubhouse Report coming up at 2:30 on live from the Winter Meetings. Bobby Cox & Frank Wren join the show.
Listening to Braves update at Winter Meetings gives little hope for a braves World Series. Frank Wren is an *** and needs to be fired. Biggest hole according to Wren is bullpen and bench bat... Really? I can think of a few holes over the best bullpen in baseball. starter and 2b would be at top of list. Get rid of some prospects and get a legit ace if you want to contend. Teheran, minor, medlen, healthy beachy are nice but not frontline aces
Did Frank Wren even make the trip to the Winter Meetings I'm not hearning any talks about the braves
Lake Buena Vista, Fla. — While Braves fans anxiously await news from the Winter Meetings and many hope general manager Frank Wren will trade for a top-of-the-rotation starter or a slugger, he indicated Monday if a move were made, it would likely be something more modest.
If you were the Frank Wren of the Braves. Would you try to get a ace pitcher of Cole Hamels or David Price or would you keep what you got and get rid of uggla?
As we gear up for Day Two of the Winter Meetings, let's take a look at the latest from around baseball.. Braves GM Frank Wren doesn't expect to make a blockbuster trade or a massive signing, writes David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “But in the case of our club, I don’t see...
The Braves have recently been linked in discussions with the Cubs about Jeff Samardzija. But even better is that they have had discussions with the White Sox who are ready to deal a starter. The Braves are believed to have interest in Chris Sale and Jose Quintana. Both are spectacular pitchers and young; 24 & 25. Quintana could have the most interest as being a teammate of fellow Colombian Julio Tehran and being much further away from arbitration than Sale. Expect the Braves to begin wheeling and dealing at MLB's Winter Meetings. Bench, bullpen, and a starter are expected to be on Frank Wren's Christmas wish list. One target is already said to be the 41 year-old Raul Ibanez, but Ibanez would surely prefer somewhere else offering more playing time. Expect Uggla to be dealt soon but the Braves may seek within the organization to fill 2B.
This week is Winter Meetings for baseball executives. So, pardon my baseball status in December. Frank Wren, Go get me an ace. David Price is who I'm looking at. And whatever you do, don't leave until you've forced Dan Uggla onto another team. Thank you.
First day of the Winter Meetings. Frank Wren bring Brandon Phillips back to Atlanta.
Dear Frank Wren, What I want for Christmas is for you to trade for Chris Sale this week at the Winter Meetings. Thanks
New York Yankees... you need a 2nd baseman. We have one. Call Frank Wren. You have MONEY!
Alls I know is, day one of the Winter Meetings I better read that Frank Wren was seen at dinner with Billy Beane or SOMETHIN
Years of reactionary moves made us losers (see: Pat Gillick's "Joe Carter" year, Frank Wren, and Syd Thrift)
So the Nats staff is currently Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Zimmerman, Fister, and Detwiler. Uh oh. We are waiting Frank Wren.
The giants sign Tim Hudson after the Braves did not even give him a qualifying offer. Frank Wren is a moron and needs to go.
Frank Wren is insane..He let Tim Hudson just leave..AND not only did he leave he went to the GIANTS!!! AND McCain is leaving next!!! AH!
Just saw a story talking about trading Dan Uggla straight up for Brandon Phillips of the Reds in basically a swap of salaries. My question is what are you waiting on Frank Wren? Sure your adding years and salary but otherwise you were just paying $26M for Uggs to ride the pine. No brainer in my opinion. Phillips is a beast.
Frank Wren's gonna get some GM drunk at the Winter Meetings and dump Duggla on them. Watch.
Frank Wren won't do it. He doesn't have the backbone to fire Fredi.
You're right Frank Wren, Eliot Johnson is a huge step up from Dan Uggla. Absolutely ridiculous, at least Uggla has the threat of the long ball. Credit to Kershaw, that man is a beast.
Braves' bats are heating up at JUST the right time. How BIG were the additions of Gerald Laird and Elliott Johnson? Heck, how about Jordan Schafer and the "throw-in" Chris Johnson? Not headline-grabbing acquisitions alone, but collectively, they ALL had a hand in this season's success. Fredi has a LOT of chess pieces. Amazing when you consider the season-ending injuries the Braves have had to overcome. They won't get the votes, but Fredi should be high in the "manager of the year" vote and Frank Wren deserves "exec of the year" consideration, too.
Brewers' Gomez, Braves' Johnson Suspended 1 Game by THE ASSOCIATED PRESS September 26, 2013 10:21 PM CDT NEW YORK (AP) — Milwaukee's Carlos Gomez admitted he went too far with a hyped-up home run trot that ended in a benches-clearing scuffle against the Atlanta Braves. Gomez was suspended Thursday along with Atlanta's Reed Johnson for one game by Major League Baseball for their actions during the Brewers-Braves game a day earlier. Both players were fined an undisclosed amount. Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman and catcher Brian McCann also were fined for their involvement. Gomez accepted the penalty and sat out the series opener against the New York Mets on Thursday. Johnson was contemplating an appeal, according Braves general manager Frank Wren. "I was expecting it after what happened last night," Gomez said. "It's not good for baseball. Just take it like a man and be responsible for the stuff I did." Batting second for the Brewers on Wednesday night in Atlanta, Gomez connected on Paul Maholm's 0- ...
Freddy Gonzalez and Frank Wren: would you rather see the Braves win would you rather have the fans see Dan Uggla and BJ Upton play? A bad investment always leaves a bad taste in your mouth but sometimes you gotta eat the punches and play the cards you're dealt. DAMNIT!!! GO DAWGS
No doubt. And to think, he was platooning with Juan Francisco to start the year. Another great move for Frank Wren.
David Carpenter. Another notch in the waiver wire championship belt that Frank Wren wears around all the time.

How smug should Frank Wren be about picking up Jordan Schafer, seriously? That was HUGE.

"Sorry Kameron, we're going to have to send you Downs" - Frank Wren when Scott Downs arrives.
But I really wish Frank Wren would have gotten a starting pitcher instead of Scott Downs 😒
I'm happy they won, but I am petitioning Frank Wren that Dan Uggla has to pay the Braves to let him bat
Frank Wren should have a show like American Pickers where he finds bullpen arms.

"Frank Wren upset many of us once again by making a poor decision. Wren traded Tommy Hanson to the Angels for Jordan Walden"
Today is a much-needed off day for the BRAVES. It also will give Frank Wren and Fredi Gonzalez another opportunity to see THE OBVIOUS. Jordan Shafer is 7 for his last 10 with a homer, crucial bunts, speed to score from 3rd on infield grounders and makes EVERY play in the outfield. He is now hitting .313 with a .406 on base %. HE MUST START IN CF NOW!!! So B.J. Upton got WAAAY overpaid. I don't care. The BEST 9 should start at the major league level and B.J. strikes out 2-3 times EVERY night. He is 1 for 29 with 2 outs and runners in scoring position. Enough already. We cannot be successful with Upton, Uggla and Heyward in the lineup ALL together. Make the change now Fredi. Bobby sure would! GO BRAVES!
I'm done as long as I am concerned Atlanta no longer has a baseball team. If you can't beat a last place team you are useless. They can't even score absolutely pathetic. Hey Uggla it's not your eyes that are the problem it's that without steroids you are a terrible ball player. The sad thing is that Frank Wren will do nothing no changes will be made nothing. I should go work there. The Atlanta Braves where you can suck and still keep your job and make a crap load of money doing it. I say it's time to boycott if you want change you need a revolution and Lord knows there needs to be a change.
I do believe Frank Wren is at the Danville Braves game tonight. Kyle has been putting on a good show.
if it wasn't for him Frank Wren might have hadno choice but to move team to Canadian league.

With Evan Gattis raking, Jason Heyward and BJ Upton struggling, and Brandon Beachy returning in two weeks, what roster moves should Frank Wren make?
did something smart? Frank Wren must have looked up what 0 WAR means. Juan Francisco, you have just been replaced! CJ better anyway
Good morning. I’m working on a Braves column that will be posted later on MyAJC.com. One element of it: Given how this team was built, who should take the most heat if things don’t work out: general manager Frank Wren or manager Fredi Gonzalez?

Uggla, Heyward, Gattis. Frank Wren preparing for baseball to turn into rugby/fight club?
if i was frank wren i'd make a huge trade right before the season. give JUpton and CJohnson for Prado, Delgado and a few others.
This isn't an ideal place for a sports franchise to be at the trade deadline. Nothing good comes from a situation when a likely playoff team dangles its best player on a hook for potential bidders, and that’s precisely what the Hawks are doing with Josh Smith.
makes u appreciate frank wren a lot more. They're retiring chippers jersey in June
For real I am going to hire a NANNY! For real! I just want to come home and spend time with my kids.by the time I get home I want dinner ready, house spotless and homework done! Looking for a NANNY as of today!
Braves GM Frank Wren: "...there's not a direct correlation between strikeouts and offense." Braves fans better hope he's right.

Hey everyone. Hope you are all doing really well. I wanted to touch base to let you all know about my new project. Most of you know I love taking photos and all of you know I love talking to people, usually I'm the one on a train that someone takes a step to open the conversation so. here we go. I've decided to do a little documentary on people who are over the age of 70 and have been married to the same person all of their lives. My aim is to find out what kept their marriage alive all of these years, the love, the respect and the relationship. I wish to spread this love to everyone as communication is lacking in so many ways these days and we need to work out things, no matter how hard they are to learn, educate and respect one another. So, I am looking for anyone interested in getting involved. I for sure need a videographer and a team who fancies doing this on the side of time out of their own time and then we'll see where it goes. We will call it. A Generation of True Love If you know anyone ...

Frank Wren: lots of potentoal as developing GM
"hey my name's frank wren, and I am completely forthright about prospects, because I have no interest in inflating their value"
Only thing that bothers me is dudes insistence Frank Wren is as ignorant as he is
My view is at odds with Chipper Jones. I dont think its at odds with Frank Wren. Imagine Gattis was 25 in AA last year
From my phone camera today, GM Frank Wren and Chipper watch Teheran throw batting practice; Chipper watching BP; Chipper watching Medlen throw BP
Gonna be sad after this season when (if) Frank Wren fires Fredi Gonzalez as the scapegoat. How many hitting coaches has FW fired already?

I'll be buying the MLB package on my PS3 this year. Frank Wren, you forced my hand with the trades you made. I have to see them play every game this year. Well played.
So the Braves have Justin Upton at 3yrs for $38.5 million with Chris Johnson at 3B. The Indians sign Michael Bourn for 4yrs at $48 million. Am I crazy or would it have made sense for Frank Wren to have been patient. To me Bourn (at J.Upton money) and keeping Prado, Delgado and the prospects is better baseball than having teammates who are brothers. Albeit very talented brothers. As a marketer, I love the deal. As a die-hard baseball fan, I love the Braves, but think we could have done better for this season. Frank Wren, I hope you are a lot smarter than me. GO BRAVES 2013.
ATLANTA—Braves general manager Frank Wren announced Wednesday that the team’s new logo would feature a grim depiction of the numerous atrocities suffered by Native Americans on the Trail of Tears.
Lori Polzin, Anthony Fox and Frank Anderson were in my dream this morning. I was at the post office, S was there... she said "Hi Ken..." I said "Hi S" ... she started talking to me and I was all like "woah... wait a second.. you haven't talked to me in years, you ignore me forever and then pretend like I'm you're best friend? what's up?" and she said "Well, I just can't remember what happened that night that L died"... I was like "Oh crap!" so I said "I don't want to talk about that" she said "I think I must have blacked out or something or maybe I have amnesia... so you know what happened" ... and I was thinking ... oh crap! I remembered that Lori and I had wrapped L in a big persian rug and rolled his dead body down the hill into some lake so nobody would find him and Andy and Tony were there and they had transported the body from wherever to the hill... so all 4 of us knew that L was dead and it was like a murder or something and I think S even did it but we had somehow got her to forget that she d ...

Day 3: Schafer and Pastornicky are again absent from camp and Fredi is not happy about it. This is what he had to say specifically about Schafer not being there: "Schafer is probably having a tough time with his travel," Gonzalez said jokingly. "He's another one I'm going to grab. He only lives two exits up the road and I haven't seen him yet. But maybe he has a five-year deal with [general manager] Frank [Wren] that guarantees he will play center. Frank hasn't told me that Schafer has signed for five years and is guaranteed to get one of the three outfield spots." Evan Gattis, who came through the minors playing catcher but played LF and 1B in Mississippi, has a good shot at making the 25 man roster. The coaches really like his bat and want to see him play some defense. He worked with gold glover Gerardo Parra while playing in Venezuela on his defensive abilities. All players are required to be in Florida tomorrow so Pastornicky and Schafer can stop screening their phone calls.
Thanks for all that attended. Great morning!
I'd like to personally thank John Schuerholz and Frank Wren for allowing Michael Bourn to take his talents to Cleveland. Smooth move.
