John Hart on the Braves: “We may not be the prettiest girl at the dance, but we’re going to be a lot of fun to dance with”
At this point it’s obvious to everyone that the Braves are rebuilding and not planning to contend in 2015, but new president of baseball operations John Hart is still putting up a positive front after blowing up the roster by trading away Jason Heyward, Justin Upton, Evan Gattis, and others.
“We may not be the prettiest girl at the dance, but we’re going to be a lot of fun to dance with,” Hart told the Associated Press, clearly not consulting with HBT’s resident Braves fan and notorious non-dancer Craig Calcaterra.
FanGraphs currently projects the Braves to have MLB’s second-worst record in 2015, ahead of only the Phillies. And no one wants to dance with either of those teams.
