ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Braves plan to interview former major league managers Bud Black and Ron Washington, in addition to giving interim skipper Brian Snitker strong consideration to run the team in 2017.

The Braves finished last in the NL East but are feeling good after a 50-47 finish to the season. The team started 9-28 under Fredi Gonzalez, who was fired, and stood at 18-46 before Snitker led a dramatic turnaround.

Team president John Hart and general manager John Coppolella both said Monday that Snitker is in the running to keep his job based on the way the team responded to his leadership. Snitker even attended an end-of-the-year media session with the two team executives, indicating he's comfortable with the process and doesn't mind waiting for the Braves to make a decision.

    The Chattanooga Mocs men’s basketball team got the mainland bracket of the Cayman Islands Classic off to a good start with a 67-50 win over Alabama State. And when we say good start, we focus on the stifling defensive effort of the first half.
