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 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 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.

Knockahoma Nation Episode 69

This week Josh and Ken go hard in the paint at some Braves bloggers. They discuss the political divide of baseball. Why do old school guys hate the analytics crowd? Why is the analytics crowd so rude and condescending to the old school crowd?

They also talk about Trump.

Knockahoma Nation Episode 68

This week Josh is off rubbing elbows with Elon Musk and driving his Tesla around the country, so Ken takes the Allstar Break to take a look back at a few things from the offseason and from last year.

This episode has some of the best moments on the show from the last year and a half and is guaranteed to make you laugh, possibly cry, and be ready to win the World Series. It’s going to be an exciting second half for the Braves and we appreciate you being a part of the community that is Knockahoma Nation!

Enjoy.

Knockahoma Nation Episode 63

Greetings, Knockahoma Nation. Do we care about Brian Snitker‘s bullpen management? Do we care about Liberty Media’s involvement in the financials of the Atlanta Braves? Do we care about what the Braves might do by the trade deadline? We do not. Why? Because the Atlanta Braves are in first place.

This week we discuss deep complex issues like Dansby Swanson, pop country and why Jonathan Howard is still single. We don’t have an answer for the latter.
