Talking Chop Podcast Episode 314: NLCS Preview as Braves Welcome Dodgers to Atlanta

The Talking Chop podcast team breaks down the upcoming NLCS between the Braves and Dodgers

MLB: NLDS-Atlanta Braves at Milwaukee Brewers Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The NLCS has finally arrived and the Braves will welcome a more than familiar foe to Atlanta for Game 1 on Saturday night: The Los Angeles Dodgers. While natural talent may be on the Dodgers side, rest, momentum, and perhaps a touch of destiny could certainly aid the Braves. If last year’s NLCS between these two same teams was any indication, it should be a wonderful series of amazing baseball.

In anticipation of the Dodgers and Braves, Talking Chop’s Eric Cole and Shawn Coleman break down the matchup from many different perspectives, including:

  • With the Game 1 starter announced as Max Fried, how could the rest of the rotation fall into alignment.
  • With Jorge Soler likely an not an option in the series, how might the lineup look and could adjustments happen during the series?
  • Do any roster changes make sense with Soler out and the Braves facing a very tough Dodgers lineup?
  • How the Braves can find success against Max Scherzer, Walker Buehler, and Julio Urias
  • Do any weaknesses stand out in the Dodgers lineup?
  • Successful approaches against the Dodgers high velocity relievers
  • Small yet significant areas of advantages the Braves much find success in
  • Plus predictions, Series MVPs, X-Factors, and Will Destiny Truly Be on the Braves side?
