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.
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
