Atlanta Braves, whose the nick name “Braves originates from a term for a Native American warrior, are based in Atlanta, Georgia registered as a member of the Eastern Division. Recently Braves has suffered one of the worst collapses in sports history, and the Braves can’t just imagine that some roster pulls are going to solve the problem. There is a name behind the collapse of the Braves: their respective manager, Fredi Gonzalez. Although a team play as team whether the game results in winning or loses, manager plays important role in handling the team’s buildup, work and strategy. At last, whether a manager is making a team better, the team has to make it believe. The Braves clearly weren’t, therefore Gonzalez clearly didn’t.
On October 13, 2010, the Atlanta Braves announced that Fredi Gonzalez would replace long-time Braves manager Bobby Cox as manager of the team in 2011. Just a year after Fredi started his occupation, Braves closed out this year with suffering a season long five straight loses, achieving just five winning of the team’s last eighteen games and a record of a record of 80–55 and blowing an 8.5 game lead in the NL Wildcard standings in the final month of the season. This collapse caused the team to go down one game behind the St. Louis Cardinals in the Wild Card race and consequently eliminated them from postseason contention.
