• Maffei said Liberty has no plans to sell the team, adding, “The Braves have been a great asset, great for Liberty, and we are happy owners.”
See? That’s the problem. The Braves are referred to as an asset, not a team, with actual human beings on the field and in the stands (in theory). Liberty has “happy owners?” Of a 4-11 team that may be on the way to 100 losses? I’m not suggesting all corporate ownership is horrible, or that all owners with faces are great (see: Atlanta Spirit). But it's clear Liberty just doesn’t care. Nobody should want ownership that just doesn’t care.
