MLB: San Diego Padres at Atlanta Braves Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Monday! Episode 35 of the Talking Chop Podcast is here and Scott Coleman joins the program to discuss everything on the Major League side for the 2016 Atlanta Braves. Topics are as follows:

  • Who is going to be the manager of the Braves for 2017 and beyond? Does the Roger McDowell fallout impact the decision? Bud Black or Brian Snitker?
  • The infield was topsy-turvy in 2016 and we discuss Freddie Freeman, Jace Peterson, Adonis Garcia, Tyler Flowers and more
  • The Braves have four outfielders for three spots and, well, the corner outfielders don’t really fit together in perfect fashion
  • Who is the closer of 2017? What about of the future? Jim Johnson, Arodys Vizcaino and Ian Krol are on the docket for discussion
  • Putting the MLB pitchers from 2016 in tiers, including Julio Teheran in the top class by his lonesome
  • Breaking down a few surprises (mostly pleasant ones, to be optimistic) from the 2016 season and even taking a few opportunities to make bold proclamations for 2017 and beyond
