Atlanta Braves beat writer Dave O’Brien joined Dukes & Bell to talk about the latest with the MLB vs MLBPA negotiations, plus are the Braves setup well for a compressed schedule?

Are the Braves set up for success with a compressed schedule?

“Really well, and surprisingly it’s almost like they designed this team with this in mind, which of course they did not, they had no idea something like this was going to happen.” O’Brien said “But the things that they built, better depth than they’ve had in years and years, bench depth, outfield depth, just across the board depth, infield depth, utility depth, that’s going to really help you if you’re averaging a game per day instead of six games a week.”
