Good evening, all. The Atlanta Braves are barreling toward Opening Day and the Talking Chop Podcast is back for another season preview episode.

Episode 280 features a deep dive into the team’s lineup, with TC’s Brad Rowland and Scott Coleman discussing the following:

  • The latest from Spring Training, including a couple of roster projections from the team’s beatwriters
  • The Braves were really, really good on offense last season, which is worth remembering
  • Can Travis d’Arnaud repeat his ungodly performance from 2020? What happens if he slows down?
  • Freddie Freeman is pretty good at baseball
  • Ozzie Albies has a star-level projection at second base
  • It’s a big year for Dansby Swanson after something of a breakout in 2020
  • Third base continues to be a question mark, with some heat on Austin Riley
  • The outfield is headlined by a superstar, a top-flight bat and a youngster seemingly in line for a big role
  • How good is this position player group supposed to be in 2021?
  • Much, much more
