Happy Monday everyone!

It’s the middle of January and while most Atlanta sports fans are celebrating the Falcons’ Super Bowl appearance for the second time in franchise history, we’re talking Braves baseball. It’s Episode 48 and the topics include:

  • Remembering Yordano Ventura and Andy Marte after their tragic deaths
  • Quick thoughts on the acquisition of Micah Johnson
  • Getting excited about the Braves being named the top farm system in baseball by ESPN’s Keith Law
  • Thoughts on the Braves signing Kurt Suzuki to a one-year deal (What a huge move)
  • Thoughts on the Braves having four players competing in the World Baseball Classic
  • A breakdown of the Mallex Smith trade, where Gaurav scouts out Luiz Gohara and Thomas Burrows, while Brad and myself sit quietly, listen and nod.
  • Finally we fire random prospect questions at Gaurav and enjoy his responses

Thanks for carrying the show today, Gaurav!
