Happy Sunday! The Talking Chop Podcast returns for Episode 125 and TC’s Gaurav Vedak hops aboard for a fun show. Topics for this mid-August extravaganza include the following:

  • Checking in on Atlanta’s recent results, including a glance at the NL East race, Wild Card pursuit and the upcoming schedule
  • Kevin Gausman is already making waves and that is fun
  • Quietly, Kurt Suzuki hasn’t been very good lately and we discuss the situation at catcher, including Tyler Flowers’ not-so-subtle mashing of left-handed pitching
  • Managerial weirdness strikes again
  • Remember when Dansby Swanson was hitting in April? Those days are long gone and we take our weekly dive into the shortstop
  • Kolby Allard has been a hot-button topic and we get Gaurav’s thoughts on his present and future
  • Touki Toussaint is in line to start on Monday and that is cause for celebration
  • What should the bullpen look like moving forward with the potential infusion of young talent?
  • The Ryan Flaherty experience continues... for reasons passing understanding
  • Two (very) intriguing prospects to watch from Gaurav
  • Much, much more
