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!

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

This week on the podcast, Josh hangs out with the one and only Braves Options Guy! They talk about Jon Heyman tickling Scott Boras tush, Ronald Acuña’s hat, and imaginary racists. Then Ken and Josh talk about the NCAA Tournament, Baby Blue, a deep scientific discussion about elevation as it relates to sea level, and cheering for the Damn Yankees. We also find out who Josh’s celebrity crush is, and what he thinks of Julia Roberts and her money.
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.
On this week’s replacement-level podcast, we bring back the boys from Outfield Fly Rule and Doc Herbert from Call to the Pen to school us on the stacked pitching prospects the Braves have on the farm.
Farmer Ken talks about the importance of story in communicating to others. If you were born around 1992 or later, you might need to listen. A story is an account of real or imaginary people or events told for entertainment or educational purposes. It’s what we humans used to do before Twitter.
Josh and Ken talk about Camargo and the Braves’ new mascot, Blooper. Is Camargo bulking up? Could he be the power bat the Braves so desperately need? Was Blooper based on photos of Dayton from Nebraska? Or is the resemblance purely coincidental?
Josh also explains gold. Let’s get weird.

Also on the show (in between Josh and Ken arguing about the the movie Legends of the Fall) they discuss the new MLB pace-of-play debacle. Will pitch clocks really help grow the game of baseball? Josh and Ken seem to think that the real challenge in growing baseball is making baseball more accessible among low-income youths here in America (where MLB teams actually exist). Braves Options Guy also stops by to explain baseball salary arbitration, PLUS Ken gives content creators some basic tips.
