Knockahoma Nation Episode 84

Back in July when the Padres were in town, Padres catcher Raffy Lopez tried to kill our friend Kurt Suzuki on a backswing. Well, last week the Atlanta Braves made a trade that brought Raffy to Atlanta. So, before we could let Raffy into our hearts, we needed an apology.

We reached out to Raffy and he makes his HISTORIC Knockahoma debut on this week’s podcast. What a guy.

The boys, along with JT also talk about some college football match-ups from over the weekend, as well as some Braves and NFL.

Knockahoma Nation Episode 83

First of all, the boys at Knockahoma Nation would like to congratulate Nick Markakis, out of Young Harris, for winning his third glove. According to FanGraphs, that’s three more than Brad Rowland has won.

On this week’s show, J.T. returns to talk some college football. Is Notre Dame overrated? Can Georgia stand toe-to-toe with Bama? Is Tua a little overrated?

The boys also talk about some of the latest news around baseball, from the Kershaw signing, to the Braves picking up Raffy Lopez.

Knockahoma Nation Episode 81

This week on the Knockahoma Nation podcast Josh and Kenny take a deep dive into catching options for the Atlanta Braves going into next year.

Cervelli? Bring back Zuk? Maybe sign a guy like Ramos for a 2-3 deal until William Contreras is MLB ready? The boys look at all the angles but can’t promise answers.

Also – Here’s Wayne Cavaldi’s article on William Contreras, as mentioned in the podcast. It’s very good, and if you’re a Braves fan, it should excite you about this young catching prospect.

Knockahoma Nation Episode 79

This week one of our favorite baseball friends joins the show. 
Natasha Vargas-Cooper is an accomplished journalist and author out on the left coast and is a true-blue LA Dodgers fan. 

Being that the Braves are playing the Dodgers (for better or for worst) we had to bring back Natasha to the Knockahoma Nation podcast.

Topics discussed include, but are not limited to:

  • Rich Hill’s nipples
  • Hotboxing in late-90’s Toyota Camrys
  • Chase Utley’s sex appeal
  • Jews in baseball

Josh and Kenny also talk about the first two games of this painful NLDS and their thoughts on Newk taking the mound for Game 3.

Win or lose, it’s been a hell of a ride for the 2018 Atlanta Braves and we couldn’t be more proud of them.

Knockahoma Nation Episode 78 (Playoff Edition)

The 2018 Atlanta Braves were projected by most to win around 72-77 games. Instead, they’ve been the darlings of baseball and Brian Snitker is a shoe-in for NL Manager of the Year. And, for the first time in five years they’re headed to the playoffs.

All of this being said, it only made sense for Knockahoma Nation to bring you an EXTRA sort of show. Guests this week include Michael Kelly, Matthew Kaminski (the Braves organist guy), Timothy Miller, Doc Herbert and 1966 AL wins leader Jim Kaat.

Knockahoma Nation Episode 77

The Atlanta Braves are your 2018 National League East Champions. That’s right. The year in which they were projected by almost every reputable sports outlet to be the laughing stock of the NL East (again) they shocked they world.

This week we’ve got Josh’s cousin, Kent, on the show. With Josh and Kent together, they can troll anyone. We not only talk about potential Braves playoff match-ups, but also some college football. We’re sorry. It’s football season, too, and we cannot help ourselves.

Also, get ready for next week because we’ve got some surprises up our sleeves.

Knockahoma Nation Episode 75

Welcome to another episode of your favorite Braves (ish) podcast. This week the boys recap Kenny’s vacation and talk about the most important things in life – college football, how to tailgate at a Notre Dame game and what makes a good beach bar.

They also talk about Colin Kaepernick. Fun fact – He’s a terrible quarterback. Which might have more to do with the fact that he can’t find a job than his political views. 

Oh, the boys also talked about one of the ailments that hurts players’ on-the-field performance – the booty effect.
