MLB: Spring Training-Washington Nationals at Atlanta Braves Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Monday! Episode 37 of the Talking Chop Podcast is upon us and the great Carlos Collazo joins the program for a round-up of all things Atlanta Braves. Topics include the following:

  • Carlos’s take on the Brian Snitker hire, including what he would have been prioritizing throughout the search
  • An update on Matt Marksberry’s health (and we send our good wishes)
  • The Brian McCann trade rumors are back and, no, we don’t think the Braves should trade Mike Foltynewicz to New York to bring him back
  • Mark Bowman of MLB.com unearthed some interesting material in a recent mailbag and we break it down
  • Would Justin Verlander be an intriguing trade candidate for the Braves this offseason? What about Zack Greinke? We take a look at whether either pitcher would be a worthy target
  • We try to unearth a list of five prospects in the Braves farm system that are legitimately “off-limits”. It’s basically impossible, but it happened anyway.
  • Here is a link to the website referenced at the end of the show, including some of Carlos’s writing work.
