The Braves announced on Monday morning that they have promoted Alex Anthopoulos to president of baseball operations and general manager, while extending the contracts of manager Brian Snitker and his coaching staff through the 2021 season.

The Braves have been active this offseason adding Cole Hamels, Will Smith and Marcell Ozuna to the team.

The Braves were bounced from the 2019 Postseason earlier than expected and enter this season, according to many, as favorites again in the NL East and second only to the Dodgers as favorites for the entire National League.

Thomas Mott and Will Palaszczuk discuss the promotions and extensions and whether they were fully deserved.

"So collapsing in Game 5 of the NLDS gets you a contract extension," questions Will Palaszczuk. "Clutching to the pearls that are amazing prospects that we have no idea whether they will be good or not, that warrants an extension? You got to the same level as the year before, no further. You've maintained."
