Episode 54 – Knockahoma Nation Podcast

The Unexpected Braves

It’s safe to say that the Bravos are better than anyone (except Josh) projected them to be. It’s still early, but so far this team has been fun to watch (even after that weird game in Chicago yesterday).

This week on the podcast Josh and Ken talk about:

  • Is Ozzie Albies the greatest second baseman of all time?
  • Is A.J. Minter the best pitcher? Or the best pitcher ever?
  • Dansby Swanson looks like a brand new man.
  • Josh gets political
  • Ken gets traditional
  • and much more!

Episode 53 – Knockahoma Nation Podcast

After a couple of weeks of Atlanta Braves baseball, it’s looking like the Bravos aren’t that bad. It’s also looking Brian Snitker might know what he’s doing. It’s almost like Brian Snitker has been managing baseball players since 1982 or something and none of us have. Very interesting.

This week on the podcast:

  • LIVE and exclusive footage of the 2018 Braves Masturds (a tradition unlike any other)
  • Josh teaches us about UZR
  • Ken talks about the foundation of the podcast and some of the advanced metrics of baseball
  • The boys review this past week in Braves Country

Episode 52 – Knockahoma Nation Podcast

Nickahoma Nation

Welcome to season two of Knockahoma Nation. Baseball is back and we’re out of our minds as usual.

This week we are joined by Dan Horton to talk about season predictions for pitchers, a look at the first few games, and an ode to Nick Markakis. With Markakis’ walk off homer on Opening Day Josh and Dan take a moment to bask in the glory of the grecian god of right fielders.

We also get a visit from Braves Options guy breaking down the opening day roster and some of his expectations for the year, a little bit of emotional pageantry, and of course a look at some options.

As always thanks for listening Knuckleheads, and chop on!

Wives & Dinghies

It’s been a year, Knockahoma Nation. One full year. You’ve wasted an entire year listening to us being complete dinguses. Seriously, tho, we hope you’ve had as much fun as we’ve had.

For our one-year anniversary episode, we’ve asked our wives to join us. After Wife Brown spilled the beans on some things about Josh, we’ve now questioned our decision to bring her on. Apparently, Charlie Culberson’s mom used to babysit them both when they were in diapers.

We also attempt to give Ben Durinio and Scott Coleman some relationship advice. Ben used to write for our friends over at Talking Chop, and Scott writes for them now. This past week they got into a heated battle on who hates the Braves more. We offered to have them on the show, but they’ve not responded to our inquiries.

Have fun. Enjoy our one-year anniversary episode. And remember – Don’t take yourselves too seriously. Baseball’s fun.

This week on the podcast the boys are joined by their buddy Gabe Burns from the Atlanta Journal Constitution who has been down at Spring Training with the team, and the boys catch up with their first international guest the newest writer over at OutfieldFlyRule.com, Matt Chrietzberg from Mississippi.

Matt has been absolutely killing it since exploding onto the scene with his deep dive articles covering many of the often overlooked aspects of the game of baseball.

Josh is on a mission this week to find out if baseball players still use gloves, we discuss who is the hero that Braves fans need, and Gabe and Josh talk about the beauty of Johan Camargo.

Episode 48 – Knockahoma Nation Podcast

This week on the podcast the boys make a very special announcement, and they’re joined by the newest member of Walk Off Walk, Brittni Swanson.

Brittni recently came onto the Braves writing scene with an outstanding article about how the pressure the Braves put on Dansby didn’t really help him. Check it out here.

We also recap the FO meetings the Braves had with the players recently. Legend has it that Anthopoulos and his guys sat down with some Braves players and went over some analytics with them via PowerPoint.

P.S. Make sure you knuckleheads support our buddies Doc and Dylan. These two of these knuckleheads (who’ve both been guests on the show) have started their own podcast called The Platinum Sombrero Podcast. It’s killer.

Episode 47 – Knockahoma Nation Podcast

Spring Training has started, boys and girls. We’re excited. Well, Ken’s excited. I don’t really care. I mean, I care, but just not as much as Ken cares.

Spring Training is too long, in my opinion. Besides the whole fun of Spring Training used to be watching guys get back into shape. That used to be part of the beauty of baseball. Guys would go back home, take the winter off, and then use Spring Training to get back in shape. These days, these over-achieving knuckleheads are in the gym at 5 am in December.

Here’s a quick breakdown of things we talked about on Knockahoma Nation this week:

  • Does Spring Training matter?
  • Do the new pace of play changes matter?
  • Does Nick Markakis matter?
  • Braves off-season recap (Does Snitker matter)
  • Braves Options Guy stops by to talk about payroll stuff
  • Josh explains AR-15s
  • And much more
