Happy... Monday! The Atlanta Braves decided to light the hot stove in surprising fashion with two interesting additions to the roster in late November. With that as the backdrop, Episode 143 of the Talking Chop Podcast arrives in emergency fashion, with both Eric Cole and Scott Coleman hopping aboard to document the proceedings.

Topics include the following:

  • Josh Donaldson has been very, very good at baseball in the past
  • What happens with the rest of the infield, headlined by Johan Camargo?
  • Realistic projections for what Donaldson may look like in 2019
  • Austin Riley is (still) on the way and we discuss how the Donaldson move may affect the young prospect
  • What’s next for the Braves and how much money does the team have left to spend?
  • Welcome back, Brian McCann and... perhaps farewell to the pursuit of a high-profile catcher
  • Playing time splits at the catcher spot and how the Braves will attack the season
  • Much, much more
