Knockahoma Nation Episode 86

This week the boys recap Thanksgiving. Josh had a special moment with his father-in-law and Kenny went to Cracker Barrel. How sad.

They also talk about this weekend’s college football rivalry match-ups and then JT goes off the rails about Bryce Harper. Maybe JT and Bryce could start their own podcast. 

Also we finish our talk with @BravesStats about baseball and stats and the Braves (bet you didn’t see that coming).

Also – Stay tuned for a very special mid-week college football episode with a very special guest!

Knockahoma Nation Episode 85

This week on the show we have our friend Paul. Paul runs a very cool Twitter account called @BravesStats, where he is a beacon of fantastic Atlanta Braves facts. In an ever-increasing politically divisive online community, Paul’s a breath of fresh air.

Josh, Kenny, and J.T. also jump into some college football recaps. They may or may not have thrown some serious shade at Georgia Tech. Listen to find out.

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.
