MLB: New York Mets at Atlanta Braves Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Greetings! The dead period continues in the baseball world and that extends, at least in large part, to the Atlanta Braves. However, Joe Lucia of Awful Announcing joins us to break through the silence and topics for Episode 99 of the Talking Chop Podcast include the following:

  • The 2018 Braves roster is eerily similar to the 2017 Braves roster... at least for now
  • How much should folks buy in to the notion of league-wide collusion and its effect on the dead free agent market?
  • What does Joe make of the current rotation and what are realistic expectations for Brandon McCarthy and the youngsters?
  • Christian Yelich is still out there... should the Braves go all in?
  • Austin Riley and the notion of “blocking” him at third base for 2018 and beyond
  • Trying to find the team’s individual leaders in WAR for the 2018 season
  • Once Chipper Jones joins the Hall of Fame in the (very) near future, who will be the next Brave to earn the honor?
  • Much, much more
