“In the 1980s, the home team could have imported Mike Schmidt and Terry Forster would’ve fallen on him and broken his leg.”
–CD, summing up a decade filled with woe for Braves fans.
Composing a team of the worst players from that decade is no easy task, so we yield the floor. Here’s the rules:
- Your nominee must have been a regular at least one season. Platoon players are acceptable — let’s put the minimum at 60 games started.
- So as not to exclude Jim Morrison, we’ll include a bench player on the All-Uggla team.
- It’s okay if your nominee was only here one season. While Andres Thomas is generally considered the worst Braves shorstop of the decade, Luis Gomez might be held in even lesser regard had he stuck around as long as Andres did.
- One player per position, including one starting pitcher and one reliever. Good luck picking just one.
