Randy McMichael and Chris Goforth wonder what's the thought process within the Atlanta Braves minor league system and bringing the players to Atlanta. 

Chris talks about how surprising Kyle Wright has been for the Braves in Spring Training and gives props to Touki Toussaint, Mike Soroka, Sean Newcomb and Ian Anderson as good pitchers to have on the staff.

Wilson and 3 other #Braves Top 100 prospects who have pitched in #SpringTraining (Kyle Wright, Ian Anderson & Touki Toussaint) have combined to post a 3.52 ERA while striking out 34 in 30.2 IP vs. just 5 walks. https://t.co/m1Jprl9rvq pic.twitter.com/bGDB2CfH5Z

However, Chris is tired of being on the cover of Baseball America with the great farm system. He is ready to be on the cover of championship magazines. Randy agrees and says that it's about time for the popular farm system to come to Atlanta.

Chris wants to know if the organization is not going to flip them to the big leagues, then try to get something else for a player we will use. Randy is tired of waiting and wants to know if the Braves are scared to put them out there or if something is wrong with the system that is not getting them prepared for the jump.
