Hello again! We recorded Episode 90 of the Talking Chop podcast on Sunday night and, just moments later, the Atlanta Braves elected to make the move to hire Alex Anthopoulos as the team’s personnel head. That, of course, calls for an emergency podcast as Episode 91 and Eric Cole joins us for the party.
Topics include the following:
- There was plenty of hilarity from Episode 90 but you should still listen!
- Breaking down the timeline from what transpired
- Was this the right hire?
- What happens to John Hart now?
- Anthopoulos’ introductory press conference and the timing of making this hire right now
- Breaking down Anthopoulos from a perspective of his history at other stops
- Other candidates that the Braves reportedly examined
- Much, much more
