The uncertainty continues for the Atlanta Braves who still don’t have a general manager after the resignation of John Coppolella. Several names have surfaced as potential replacements with none bigger than Kansas City’s Dayton Moore. At this point, Moore looks like a long shot to leave the Royals but that is exactly who several Braves veterans are lobbying for according to MLB.com’s Mark Bowman.

John Hart has assumed GM duties for the club in wake of Coppolella’s departure and is planning on staying with the team. For Moore to seriously consider a move, it would likely require the Team President role that Hart currently occupies.
There is also the uncertainty of what the MLB’s investigation will reveal. We know that Hart has been interviewed by investigators but we don’t know the level of his involvement into the transgressions that ultimately led to Coppolella’s departure.
Perhaps some of Atlanta’s veteran players are looking for a fresh start with a new front office?
