2 things Braves fans will dislike

1. He still believes in the team

While he didn't dismiss the possibility of selling, Steve Cohen did cite the fact that there has been a team every year in the past four seasons to come back from eight games back of playoff contention (where the Mets sat prior to last night's game).

He noted his patience with the team and said, "The worst thing you can do is be impulsive." Cohen believes that having a short fuse with the struggling team would compound the current issues.

While some Braves would love to see the Mets start tearing apart the team now, it looks like, at least for now, the Mets are still eyeing the playoffs.

2. Cohen is committed to Buck Showalter and Billy Eppler through the end of the season

While some Braves fans would find joy in watching a sinking ship fire off management during a poor season, Cohen stated he was committed to Buck Showalter and Billy Eppler through the end of the season.

Of course, sometimes, firing a manager does turn around a team. Just last year, the Philadelphia Phillies were sitting in a very similar situation, albeit earlier in the season, when they fired Joe Girardi. The change spurred the Phillies into a World Series run.
