Road to Atlanta is our weekly podcast where we discuss all things minor leagues and prospects for our beloved Atlanta Braves. We have relaunched the podcast and it can be found in the same stream with the Talking Chop podcast, so if you subscribe to it...you have easy access to R2A as well. Episodes will go live (most of the time) every Thursday evening and will cover a wide range of topics including top performances from the previous week, deep dives into specific prospects or topics, and lots of sweet guests.

In this weeks episode of Road to Atlanta, Matt and Eric first do a quick recap of how some of the guys are doing down in short season ball and as well as how some of the higher draft picks for the Braves are doing including Shea Langeliers and Braden Shewmake. We then discuss the draft signings overall as well as the guys who have not signed yet before we get into the meat of the episode which was discussing the guys we have missed the most on. From old favorites like Tommy La Stella and Jordan Schaefer to more recent misses, we talk about the guys that exceeded our expectations and guys that broke our hearts. Enjoy!
