Schuerholz To Step Down

Wow, they just keep on coming.  According to Ken Rosenthal, Braves GM John Schuerholz will step down (to be announced at a press conference this afternoon).  Schuerholz will serve as team president, so at least he can be consulted on moves.  Assistant GM Frank Wren will take his place.  Wren spent about a year as Orioles’ GM in ’99.

Sometimes I can be overly critical of GMs…but Schuerholz is awesome.  This is a huge loss for the Braves. On the bright side, I’m sure Wren has learned a lot working under him. 

Here’s a solid look at Wren’s brief time as Orioles GM.  Not sure who the author is.  Even with the concession that Peter Angelos did much meddling, Wren seemingly did a lousy job.  Wren did not part on good terms with the O’s – he was fired and criticized in a public statement.
