Atlanta Braves general manager Frank Wren wasn't happy with how his public relations team handled last night's altercation with Bryce Harper and the Washington Nationals. When Julio Teheran plunked Harper in the fifth inning, Harper took exception, leading to the following exchange.

 

The @Braves tweet was aimed at Harper's, "That's a clown question, bro," dismissal of a reporter last season. Wren was having none of it.

“I think it was simply an inappropriate attempt at humor from our social media department,” Wren said on ajc.com. “And it doesn’t reflect how we feel or how we want to do business or who we are. You shouldn’t ever be directing anything unless it’s positive or uplifting at another team or opponent. I think that’s kind of plain and simple.”

Wren hasn't officially apologized to the Nationals, but said he would address it if he ran into Nats GM Mike Rizzo.
 
For the record, the @Braves tweet was entirely appropriate and hilarious.
