Economist/author/Braves fan J.C. Bradbury made a fun observation today: with Jeff Francoeur joining Nick Swisher on the Braves roster, Atlanta now employs both a notable figure from “Moneyball” and the player who, perhaps more than anyone, personified anti-“Moneyball” circa 2005 and 2006 or so.
If you think, however, that this is some sort of clash of personalities, you’re quite mistaken. Indeed, from the moment it dawned on me that these two high-energy, enthusiastic and positive bros would be playing for the same team, I imagined their first meeting. It went down this morning and I was not disappointed:
Can’t wait for the 2016 Atlanta Bros season to get underway.
