It has been an emotional month for Freddie Freeman and his family. After spending his entire career in the Braves organization, he spoke at length about being blindsided by them not going after him in free agency. That ended with him ultimately signing a 6-year deal with the Dodgers for north of $160 million.
But some comments that Freddie made during his introductory press conference with the Dodgers did not sit well with Braves fans. Freddie seemingly scoffed at Alex Anthopoulos shedding tears over Freddie leaving, adding that he didn’t appreciate the lack of communication.
But that drama seems to be coming to an end. Today, the Dodgers’ first baseman penned a letter meant for Atlanta, In that letter, he apologized to the Braves’ GM and spoke more in-depth about how much he enjoyed his time with the Braves.
“First of all, my relationship with (Braves president of baseball operations) Alex Anthopoulos remains great. When we spoke earlier this week, I told Alex how much I enjoyed my time in Atlanta, especially last year when we all experienced the thrill of winning a World Series. I also apologized for some of the comments I made during my introductory press conference with the Dodgers. It was a very emotional week for my family and I.”
That should end most of the talk around the bitter ending between Freeman and the Braves. He can now move on with the Dodgers and prepare for the 2022 season and beyond while playing in Los Angeles, very close to home.
Hopefully, Braves fans are willing to accept it. The past week or so, fans in Atlanta did not take well to the comments that he made, and they turned on him very quickly.
