MLB: Philadelphia Phillies at Atlanta Braves Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Monday! Episode 36 of the Talking Chop Podcast is here and, today, we have a solo show from a major airport in the Northeast. Topics include the following:

  • The Atlanta Braves hired a manager (finally) and we recap that move and the entire re-branding of the coaching staff.
  • Jim Johnson’s contract details are available and... everything is fine
  • Could Eddie Perez get a managerial job?
  • Travis Demeritte is a popular player and we bring you a mini scouting report.
  • Jace Peterson’s future when it comes to Ozzie Albies and the second base position
  • The Braves are on record as wanting to add (at least) two starting pitchers and, um, we have no idea where these arms are coming from
  • Could Atlanta trade for Chris Sale or Chris Archer? If so, what kind of package should fans expect to be going in the other direction?
  • The 2017 season is still a few months away but we attempted (wildly) to put together a starting lineup for Opening Day. Prayers up.
