It doesn’t take much to see that the Atlanta Braves are rebuilding. So, President of Baseball Operations, John Hart says they still can be a contender in 2015.
So what have done in the off season to make that happen? How about trade away your top three hitters – Justin Upton, Jason Heyward and Evan Gattis. What did they get in return? Not much.

And the kicker is that Gattis wasn’t even a contract issue has he had four more years until he was a free agent.
“Look, we weren’t going to be favored even if we kept everybody and added two pitchers. But I think the future is significantly brighter because of what we were able to do this winter.” ~John Hart
