ATLANTA When Don Sutton was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame back in 1998, he went in as a Los Angeles Dodger. It made sense: he sported the Dodger blue for the majority of his 324 career wins; his career numbers for one of baseball's most distinctive franchises rank right alongside the likes of former teammates Don Drysdale and Sandy Koufax. And yet, when mentioned in today's game, Sutton and the Atlanta Braves have become rather synonymous. Since crafting his broadcasting voice during his playing days, the all-time great (both as a pitcher and a jokester) has been a nationally recognized voice for the Braves off and on since 1989. He's now called games for Bobby Cox and Fredi Gonzalez, Greg Maddux and Kris Medlen, Chipper Jones and Justin Upton, Mike Minor and Tom Glavine ... the list goes on and on. So, with Sutton joining the Chopcast team Zach Dillard and Cory McCartney live from Turner Field, his wealth of knowledge on the Braves (and the game of baseball in general) is evident. Here are the highlights: -- What was the thinking behind getting into broadcasting before and after his playing career was over? -- What is it like to become synonymous for a team a player did not ever play for? Does it make for a tough transition? -- Are pitch counts ridiculous? And can they actually turn a pitcher into a troll if he reaches 100 pitches? -- Should the DH be embraced or discontinued? -- Are Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine first-ballot Hall of Fame pitchers? What is the future of Dale Murphy's candidacy? -- How difficult is the Brandon Beachy decision going to be for Atlanta's front office and what should be done about the good, yet inconvenient problem SUBSCRIBE SOCIAL
