Braves: The Marcell Ozuna deal might be terrible, but at least they didn’t make this trade

Alex Anthopoulos might be the best general manager in all of sports, but even the greats have their mistakes. Signing Marcell Ozuna to a four-year, $64 million deal is a black eye that can be seen from miles away; it’s one of the worst deals in sports. Not only is Ozuna a below-replacement-level player, he also comes with a ton of baggage stemming from a domestic violence dispute. I fully expect the Braves to do everything they can to get out from under his contract, but eventually, they will probably just have to eat it and release him; it really is that horrific of a deal.
