Alex Anthopoulos becomes new Braves GM.  Atlanta owns one of the best farm systems in the league.
He was the former GM of he Toronto Blue Jays, and the GM of the 2017 World Series finalists L.A. Dodgers.

Anthopoulos talks of why he chose the Braves posting, and of his fond memories of the late great Roy Halladay.

Anthopoulos was previously the VP of player operations in the Dodgers organization.

Dodgers GM Farhan Zaidi is Canadian-born Phillipine raised, and the  first-ever Muslim GM in MLB.  Zaidi has kept close ties to his Canadian connections via relatives living in Canada.
