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 week’s episode, we touch quickly on the recent promotions of William Contreras and Greyson Jenista to Double-A which look a bit puzzling on the face of it but make a certain amount of sense in others. After that, it is all draft talk as we talk first in generalities about what we thought about the draft which wasn’t exactly a glowing endorsement, but we at least understood the strategy (we think) and there are some definite benefits. After that, we look at the picks themselves from the high profile ones in Shea Langeliers and Braden Shewmake as well as the day two and three picks that could really make some noise for the Braves in the future. Enjoy!
