It’s fun to play the what-if game with Bryce Harper, imagining him dropped into the middle of a particular lineup. There are Braves fans who view this as more than fantasy, however, based on the response to a tweet posted the other day, after Atlanta signed Josh Donaldson.

There has been speculation about the Braves’ possible pursuit of Harper because Atlanta is a team on the rise, and it has a need for an outfielder. But no Braves fan — and I have a 14-year-old in my home who wears a Freddie Freeman shirt to school at least once a week — should bother jumping on social media every five minutes over the next three months to check for a Harper/Atlanta update, because it’s not how the franchise does business.
