While this offseason feels different than any other for a few reasons (Freddie Freeman, labor disputes, the ATLANTA BRAVES ARE 2021 WORLD SERIES CHAMPIONS), one familiar offseason theme did not take long to emerge in the form of Scott Boras making headlines. Yes, Scott Boras, the savant of senseless speeches every November, expressed his disapproval of how the Braves won their 2021 World Series. Obviously, many have opposed Boras’s perspective. Yet, perhaps one of the more influential opinions on the matter expressed his thoughts on Sunday.
cause certain teams to HAVE to sell off players. Been done this way for years. His team (LAD) traded for/or signed 3 eventual/potential HOFers & didn’t get it done. But bc it paid off for the Braves, now it’s a problem? Dude, stay in your lane. No one cares what you think. #smh— Chipper Jones (@RealCJ10) November 14, 2021
Chipper decided to go with a very direct and emphatic approach when it came to his feelings toward Boras. A few days ago, Boras attempted to clarify his statements as to not take anything away from the Braves success. In the end, Boras’s thoughts are simply his opinion. I would imagine in the minds of many, the Braves postseason run will be remembered as one of the best in recent history for many years to come.
