I passed along a report two weeks ago that the Braves were close to hiring Brewers play-by-play announcer Jim Powell. Today, David O'Brien reported that the Braves have indeed hired Power, and now hope to pair him with former Braves announcer Don Sutton, who is currently an announcer for the Washington Nationals.
Sutton was an announcer for the Braves for 18 season! Wow, I had no idea it was that long. I always enjoyed Sutton a color analyst, he usually had some really good insight into baseball situations and what might be going on in the clubhouse.
There was apparently supposed to be a news conference tomorrow, but the Braves are encountering difficultties getting Sutton out of his current contract with the Nationals.
