Happy Monday everyone.

On this week's episode of the Talking Chop Podcast, Brad and myself were honored to have our very own prospect guru, Eric Cole aboard. Given the state of the Atlanta Braves farm system, Eric has had a lot of different players to check out and get excited for, and this week he offers some of the insight that he's developed with these players.

The three of us also picked out players in the system that we were higher on purely because of emotional or hype-related reasons, and picked out a few different players we were each looking forward to seeing during Spring Training.

In addition, we started our first mailbag segment in the podcast and addressed some of the questions that the readers posed for us last Friday. Again, a big thanks to all of you who are providing feedback and everyone who takes the time to listen. It continues to be an awesome experience and we're looking forward to keeping it going.

On another note, now that we are on iTunes we would really appreciate it if you guys who are enjoying the show could drop in a quick review and rate the podcast. Getting reviews and feedback within the iTunes store itself is one of the quicker ways to help grow the podcast, and if you feel so inclined we'd love the chance to bring this to even more Braves fans.

If you're not an iTunes person, you can also check out the podcast and all of our past episodes on our SoundCloud page.

Carlos and Brad discuss the farm system with Talking Chop prospect expert Eric Cole. Eric breaks down how he got involved in prospects and the minor leagues in general, as well as how he looks at and analyzes players in the system.
