Happy New Year! Well... almost? At any rate, the Talking Chop Podcast is back with Episode 97 to wrap up 2017 and Scott Coleman jumps aboard to discuss all the latest

  • Scott’s long awaited thoughts on the Matt Kemp trade, why the Braves did it and the benefits to clearing the veteran outfielder off the roster
  • Preston Tucker is a member of the squad now but can he make an actual impact in the outfield for 2018?
  • Danny Santana is back... kind of
  • Adonis Garcia is seemingly headed to Korea and we offer a quick eulogy on his career with the Braves as a result
  • The Braves are going to have a ton of money for the 2018 offseason heading into 2019. What will they use it on?
  • There is reason to be optimistic about Atlanta’s upside this season and a projection system sees it
  • Looking ahead a bit to 2018 while looking back to 2017 and remembering where we came from in the early stages of the rebuild
  • Much, much more
