While I can only speak for myself, I feel confident in suggesting that may Braves fans are also baseball fans in general. As a result, during parts of the offseason and around the trade deadline, it is likely that much of Braves country and other fanbases make sure to turn the notifications icon on for Ken Rosenthal, Jeff Passan, and others.
However, if Braves fans want to know the details when their favorite team makes a move, they must go straight to the source. In recent years, the Braves franchise itself has revealed major signings or trades, choosing to ensure very little news or rumors are available on potential moves.
Bob Nightengale of USA Today approached Alex Anthopolous on this very topic, who revealed that the stealth and silent mode in which the Braves operate is strategic:
This is information is likely not a surprise to anyone, as it makes total sense that the Braves want to do everything that can to have as much leverage as possible. And in the end, it is hard to argue that that approach has been anything less than effective. Even it is not the most exciting method due to the lack of speculation, the end results speak for themselves.
