Happy Monday! Episode 38 of the Talking Chop Podcast is here for your listening pleasure and our own Eric Cole joins the program for an update of all things Atlanta Braves. Topics include the following:
- It is World Series time so, obviously, we had to talk about it... even if the discussion was woefully out of date immediately
- Ender Inciarte and Nick Markakis are Gold Glove finalists. One of those makes sense.
- Mallex Smith was cut from a team in the Mexican Winter League. Panic time?
- Matt Wisler and how Roger McDowell’s ousting could play into recent analysis of the young right-hander (warning: reckless speculation alert)
- Eric brings an Arizona Fall League update, including the splendor that is Travis Demeritte
- R.A. Dickey might be a Braves target and we are largely unmoved by that possibility
- Cuban infielder Lourdes Gurriel is a hot topic in the baseball world. Will/should the Braves get involved in his pursuit?
- Eric reveals his list of most “untouchable” prospects, with one very important caveat
