Good evening, friends. The Atlanta Braves did a thing on Tuesday afternoon, breaking the off-season silence by signing old friend Nick Markakis to a two-year deal that almost functions as a one-year deal.

As a result, the Talking Chop podcast is here for Episode 150 in emergency fashion and TC’s Scott Coleman joins us for the fun. Topics include the following:

  • The details of the Markakis’ deal and the value proposition involved
  • Alex Anthopoulos shared some public comments after the deal came to fruition
  • What is Markakis’ role going to be as he returns for 2019? What should it be?
  • The next step for the Braves will determine the analysis of this particular move
  • Much, much more
