MLB: Washington Nationals at Atlanta Braves Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Episode 33 of the Talking Chop Podcast arrives on this fine Monday and Eric Cole (@leprekhan) joins the proceedings. Topics are as follows:

  • The tragic passing of Jose Fernandez and how he’ll be remembered
  • The Braves were red hot (before Saturday) and Brian Snitker is a popular man right now.
  • Freddie Freeman’s hitting streak (and on-base streak) are alive and we fawn over his numbers
  • Ozzie Albies got a positive report from his surgery
  • A bunch of prospects debuted in 2016, headlined by Dansby Swanson, and we take a look back
  • The Braves also added a boatload of talent from outside of the organization, and Eric provides some positives and negatives from that group
  • We take your questions on players like Patrick Weigel and Lucas Sims
  • Positive takeaways from 2016
  • Negative takeaways from 2016
  • Reckless predictions and speculation for 2017 and beyond, including a few moments you’ll want to record for later
  • Finally, we close the door on the Braves having any chance at the No. 1 pick in 2017 and outline a more likely scenario
