John Schuerholz Stepping Down In Atlanta

This is insane, never would have guessed both St. Louis and Atlanta would both be changing GM's this offseason:

An era is ending for the Braves. John Schuerholz is stepping aside as general manager.

The team's venerable general manager will announce at a 3:30 p.m. press conference that he will remain with the organization as team president and be replaced by top assistant Frank Wren, according to three people familiar with the situation.

"I'm not going to comment whatsoever," Braves chairman and CEO Terry McGuirk. "I will have lots to say at 3:30."

Manager Bobby Cox is returning for at least one more season.

Big changes in the NL, will be interesting to see how it all plays out. Is it completely out of the realm of possibility that the Braves could return to their pre 1990's selves?
