Andy Wilson started this petition to Atlanta Braves

Last year Nick Markakis was used by the Braves in the worst way possible.  He was not even worth half a WAR, yet the Braves chose to start him as much as possible and the only thing that kept him from playing 160 games was an injury.  Nick Markakis still has some useful skills, he has very good at-bats vs. right handed pitchers, he see a lot of pitches and makes very consistent contact vs. righties.  However unfortunately the Braves feel that his skills extend well beyond this, he was not treated as a platoon player when he came back from injury, despite Matt Joyce doing better vs. lefties last year.  He was also left in to play defense in game 3 of the NLDS despite Billy Hamilton being used as a pinch runner.  Instead of bringing Hamilton in the Braves left Markakis in despite him not being a good defender and Billy Hamilton being an elite defender.  Nick Markakis still can be very useful to any team in the league however, due to the Braves refusing to use him in the proper capacity the Braves should not re-sign him and he should move on to a different team.  If you care about the Braves putting the best product on the field next year, you will sign this petition to keep Nick Markakis off the Braves in 2020.  Thank you all for your time
