Step by step, the Braves of now are seeking to resurrect the team of a record 14 consecutive division titles, five National League pennants and a World Series championship. So far, so good -- at least when it comes to moves away from the playing field, and here's the latest: The new-old Braves have not one, not two, but three general managers.
OK, none is officially the Braves' general manager, but the choppers and the chanters don't care about technicalities after watching their team reach the playoffs only three times in the last nine years since its glorious run through the 1990s and beyond. Whatever works. With that in mind, the Braves are trending in a positive direction after they unofficially made a trio of Johns -- Schuerholz, Hart and Coppolella -- their three-headed general manager.
