MLB: Chicago Cubs at Atlanta Braves Adam Hagy-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Sunday, everyone. All is (relatively) quiet with the Atlanta Braves as Thanksgiving approaches but the Talking Chop Podcast is here with a (long) episode anyway.

Joe Lucia of Awful Announcing joins the program for Episode 142 and topics include the following:

  • Two more awards for the Braves, with one arriving for a (young) player and one for the manager
  • No real MVP buzz for Atlanta, but there were votes cast
  • It’s probably time to move on from J.T. Realmuto talk
  • What is Atlanta’s biggest need this off-season?
  • Reviewing the 2018 lineup, from Ronald Acuña and Freddie Freeman to Dansby Swanson and Ender Inciarte
  • What does Steamer project for Atlanta in 2019?
  • Evaluating the bats from a big-picture perspective in comparison to other contenders
  • Much, much more
