Road to Atlanta is our weekly podcast where we discuss all things minor leagues and prospects for our beloved Atlanta Braves. We have relaunched the podcast and it can be found in the same stream with the Talking Chop podcast, so if you subscribe to it...you have easy access to R2A as well. Episodes will go live (most of the time) every Thursday evening and will cover a wide range of topics including top performances from the previous week, deep dives into specific prospects or topics, and lots of sweet guests.
In this week’s episode of Road to Atlanta, Matt and I go it alone for this one as we talk about our thoughts on Ozzie Albies extension as well as what our expectations were of him before he reached the majors and what he could be going forward. After, we railed against MiLB’s decision to force Baseball America to take down minor league videos and the general thought process behind that decision (short answer: we hate it and we love Baseball America). Then we went over some of the guys that have really shown out in the early part of the minor league season for the Braves in 2019 which we will likely go back and laugh at at the end of the season. Finally, we answer some of your questions about Braves prospects (we promise, we saved the questions we didn’t answer and will answer them in a different podcast). Enjoy!
