Atlanta will keep bench coach Chino Cadahia, first base coach
Glenn Hubbard, pitching coach Roger McDowell, hitting coach Terry
Pendleton, bullpen coach Eddie Perez and third base coach Brian
Cox said the staff is -- quote -- ``filled with great
communicators and very hard workers.''
Cadahia, Perez and Snitker were finishing their first season on
the staff. Hubbard is the longest-serving member with nine years of
service, while Pendleton is completing his sixth season and
McDowell his second.
After winning 14 straight division titles from 1991-2005, the
Braves have come up short two consecutive years. They were
eliminated from this season's playoff race on Thursday and will
finish third in the N-L East for the second year in a row.
