The Atlanta Braves, Liberty Media, and Misplaced Anger

While it is true that the Atlanta Braves typically are in the middle of the pack in payroll dollars, the reality is that it isn’t Liberty Media holding payroll down (more in this later). The Braves’ payroll and operating budget are set by Braves’ longtime Chairman and CEO Terry McGuirk. McGuirk and President John Schuerholz run the day-to-day business operations of the Braves, while President of Baseball Operations John Hart runs the day-to-day baseball operations. Liberty Media has virtually no involvement with the club; the team operates as a stand-alone entity, surviving or failing based on its own revenues generated.
