Braves Dugout

By Sam Peebles
This podcast is about all things Braves baseball. We talk about position battles, roster moves, potential trades, game recaps, and our personal favorite, "Peebles Pitch". In this segment we talk about controversial topics using only stats and logic where no bias is attached, such as which Braves players should or should not be in the hall of fame.
