2883
The final episode of our 2021 MLB Draft coverage of the Atlanta Braves professional baseball club is in the books and it was a VERY interesting draft to be sure.

After that, we got down to the business of giving our assessment of how the Braves did in the 2021 draft class which has plenty of upside, but a lot of question marks.

This week on Road to Atlanta, we had a bit of ground to cover with last week being a mailbag show, but the biggest takeaway is that the Braves have some really interesting relief prospects in the organization.

This week's episode of Road to Atlanta is a bit different. Minor league camp is just now getting underway and as we await minor league roster announcements and the start of the MiLB season, instead of just another mailbag episode, I figured that the best course of action was to reach out to one of the more asked about prospects in the Braves system and fortunately, he said yes. Michael Harris joins me (Eric) on the podcast right after practice to talk a bit about how things went for him at the alternate site last year as well as in Spring Training as well as what he is focused on right now going into the 2021 season.

Road to Atlanta - Episode 28 - Recapping the 2020 Braves Draft and being mad at Rob Manfred
3293
In this episode of Road to Atlanta, Matt and Eric start off by voicing our deep displeasure with the state of the negotiations regarding the fate of the 2020 baseball season. Rob Manfred is essentially trying to extort legal guarantees that no sane human would agree to under normal circumstances and, well, we don't like it. We also miss baseball. After those rants, we turn our attention to the 2020 Draft which wrapped up last week and we break down each of the new Braves including Jared Shuster, Jesse Franklin, Spencer Strider, Bryce Elder, as well as the undrafted free agents the Braves have signed so far. It was fun to talk about actual baseball things and less fun to talk about the exceedingly rich trying to get exceedingly richer. Enjoy! Learn more about your ad choices.

This draft is going to be a weird one with drastic reduction in the number of rounds and is poised to be an outlier in baseball history, so the goings-on are going to be fascinating to see unfold. We go over some of the changes to the draft format, talk about the potential consequences of those changes, and share our thoughts on who the Braves could be taking both in the first round as well as in later rounds...or at least who we would like to see picked.

With the recent Rule 5 draft there was plenty of things to talk about, with 40 man roster additions and a couple of minor league selections going down for the Braves. We also said goodbye to a few long time Braves prospects who may be leaving us in free agency and where they may find themselves in the coming season. The biggest news in the minor league circuit was the proposed contraction of 42 minor league teams, and we had a lengthy discussion about our concerns, minor league salaries, and the impact this could have on minor leagues players for the future.

In this week's episode of Road to Atlanta, Garrett and Eric first talk about their recent visits to Rome and which prospects impressed them the most. Spoilers: Michael Harris, Greg Cullen, and Bryce Ball featured prominently in that discussion. After that, everyone talked about their initial impressions of the Braves' representatives in the Arizona Fall League coming up this fall which includes some outfield prospects we are continually intrigued by. After that, we take lots of listener questions from topics such as the future of right field in Atlanta, Nolan Kingham's ceiling, and how the performance of some of the guys in the lower levels of the minors effects the tradeability of guys like Drew Waters and Cristian Pache (it doesn't).

After that, Matt talks about his recent trips to see Gwinnett in action to see how Ian Anderson, Tucker Davidson, Cristian Pache, and Drew Waters are looking in Triple-A. We then answered listener questions about the Braves' current shortstop problem, the depth of the minor league system in the coming years, Freddy Tarnok's development, and what we expect for the Braves' outfield in the near future.

1881
In this week's episode of Road to Atlanta, we had a shorter episode than usual as we had Matt on location watching a minor league game and we didn't want to tempt the audio/connection gods too much (apologies in advance if the audio isn't quite as good as usual). First things first, our own Garrett Spain re-joined the podcast to give us a hand (he is going to be back on frequently in the future) to talk some prospects. The big news of the week we discussed was the promotions of several of the Braves' top prospects including Cristian Pache, Drew Waters, Ian Anderson, and Tucker Davidson. After that, we talked a bit about some of the Braves minor leaguers who have been among the top performers recently. Enjoy! We promise next week will be a longer episode.

In this week's episode, we focused solely on the prospect rankings we rolled out this past week over on Talking Chop.

After that, it is all draft talk as we talk first in generalities about what we thought about the draft which wasn't exactly a glowing endorsement, but we at least understood the strategy (we think) and there are some definite benefits. After that, we look at the picks themselves from the high profile ones in Shea Langeliers and Braden Shewmake as well as the day two and three picks that could really make some noise for the Braves in the future.

After that, we were fortunate enough to be able to bring Jim Callis from MLB Pipeline on to the show despite his busy schedule (and my pestering him constantly....sorry Jim). Jim talks to us a bit about some of the big position player prospects in the Braves system, gives a ton of insight into the state of power numbers in the minors (in particular in Triple-A) due to the baseballs being used, and then takes a dive with us into what we can expect to see from the 2019 MLB Draft from the Braves at least as an early glance.
