Braves GM Drama Shows It’s Time to Put an End to Sports Fans’ Sense of Entitlement

The Atlanta Braves announced on Monday that general manager John Coppolella and special assistant to the GM Gordon Blakeley resigned, part of a fallout stemming from MLB’s investigation of the team for circumvention of international signing rules. The Braves’ statement read: “The resignation comes as a result of a breach of Major League Baseball rules regarding the international player market.”

John Hart takes over as Atlanta’s acting general manager until the team finds a replacement.
