Less than 24 hours after Episode 296 of the Talking Chop Podcast arrived in RSS feeds across Atlanta Braves country, the team’s front office delivered a bit of surprising news. Atlanta announced a trade to acquire veteran outfielder Joc Pederson from the Chicago Cubs, with Bryce Ball going the other way.
With that in mind, Brad Rowland and Eric Cole convened in emergency fashion for Episode 297 to address the following:
- What are the Braves getting with Pederson?
- The timing is interesting, but what does it actually mean?
- Eric’s thoughts on parting ways with Bryce Ball
- Pederson’s potential impact and the high-stakes nature of the next several games for the Braves
- Much, much more
