The Braves apparently are going to make a concerted effort to reconnect with their fan base. That’s not surprising considering the roster blowout of the last one and a half years and the Cobb County stadium deal has left many feeling less than enamored of the organization, especially after finishing 67-95 last season, the team’s worst record in 25 years.
But seeking feedback from the public can be perilous. Especially on Twitter.
Just after 5 p.m. Wednesday night, the Braves’ Twitter account sent out a Tweet announcing that general manager John Coppolella would answer questions at 3 p.m. Thursday. Fans were asked to use the hashtag #AskCoppy.
You know where this is going.
