Via the reliable Jeff Passan:
Braves president John Schuerholz offered Hart the option of taking over the team’s GM duties full time, sources told Yahoo Sports. Before making a decision, Hart told Schuerholz he needed to give it serious thought, sources said. …
Were Hart to accept the job, it’s likely he would groom assistant GM John Coppolella, 35, whom the Braves retained.
Hart’s success in Cleveland is well documented, but his record in Texas hasn’t received much scrutiny. It’s not great, though his time in Arlington (2001-04) was brief.
He signed Chan Ho Park to a huge contract, traded Travis Hafner for Einar Diaz and Ryan Drese and shipped A-Rod, whom he inherited, to the Yankees for Alfonso Soriano. His drafts were underwhelming, though three of his picks are still productive big leaguers: Ian Kinsler, Scott Feldman and John Danks.
On the plus side, he acquired Adrian Gonzalez for Ugueth Urbina and released John Rocker.
