John Hart wants the Braves to be [insert cliche here]

15 Comments

John Hart met with the media for the first time since taking over as the Braves’ new president of baseball operations and in doing so the 66-year-old former Indians and Rangers general manager laid out his plans for rebuilding the team:

That’s all the type of stuff frustrated fans will probably eat up–he wants tough guys instead of these losers we’ve had lately!–but really Hart is basically saying nothing.

He wants to bring in players who’re like the players on the two teams currently matched up in the World Series. He wants “tough” players rather than, presumably, “weak” players. He wants “winning” players rather than, presumably, “losing” players. And he wants “players who overachieve rather than underachieve.”

Got it.
