Greetings! After a bout with faulty technology for Episode 110, the Talking Chop Podcast is back and this week’s show is an interesting one given the circumstances. TC’s own Gaurav Vedak joins the program for Episode 111 and topics include the following:

  • The highs of a five-game winning streak (and first place) gave way to an ugly sweep over the weekend. What should we take away from the up-and-down week?
  • Jose Bautista’s arrival and the notion that team chemistry was the “cause” of the weekend swoon
  • Dansby Swanson hit the DL and Charlie Culberson survives... for now
  • Hello, Mike Soroka. We discuss the young hurler after his first two starts in the Majors
  • Nick Markakis has been truly ridiculous thus far and we discuss his exploits in full
  • How close is Austin Riley to arriving in Atlanta? We dive in on the super-hot third base prospect who happens to be mashing right now
  • Gaurav’s thoughts on a few prospects to watch in the coming days
  • Much, much more
