Coppy got the boot yesterday for (allegedly) playing fast and loose on the international market. Early indications are that the Braves may lose picks, or even players.

The word I saw is that the infraction was related to bundling signing bonuses together to give certain players extra money over and above what is allowed by the rules controlling the international market. Apparently, several other teams have been previously caught in similar schemes. If you ain't cheatin', you ain't tryin', I suppose.

Sitting hear watching Sox - Stros, where every pitch means something.
Braves suck again with no playoff baseball in sight.

He(Coppy) has been banned for life by the MLB and the braves have been limited to the Amount of money they can offer signees and they lost multiple picks. He really screwed the braves!!

Coenen was all over this. The worst part is losing the talent. The Venezuelan kid that was supposed to be the next big thing will probably jump off the ship.

Honestly, it only sounds like they lost a couple of guys that would've had a reasonable shot of making noise at the Major League level. Fans may not even really notice the "punishments" the way I see it. The Braves already have the core group of players expected make up the "rebuild" team in the pipe at the AA, or AAA level, and MLB didn't touch them.

SI.com has a fairly interesting article on the subject.

We'll just have to see.

Basically they won't have any shot at any top level Latin players till 2021 through the international pool. Of course they can still trade for them. They also forfeit the 3rd round pick in Junes draft because of some under the table dealing with this years 3rd round pick.

Maitan was the only highly rated prospect lost and he struggled in rookie ball.

4 years in a row of < 500 baseball = it doesn't look like they have lost much.

But hey, they got a new stadium out of the deal.
