From Tim Tucker’s review of Liberty’s financials:
In a conference call that Liberty executives held with investment analysts Thursday, the Braves were mentioned once. That was in the context of a discussion about taxes.
Is there a team in baseball that has benefited from corporate ownership? The Cubs (Tribune), the Angels (Disney) and the Dodgers (Fox) were all mismanaged by their corporate overlords.
The Braves are nothing but an asset with tax benefits to Liberty. I don’t blame the company as much as I do the sorriest excuse for a commissioner in the history of professional sports.
