Greetings! The Talking Chop Podcast arrives for the final show in August and Episode 127 features the return of TC’s own Scott Coleman.

Topics include the following:

  • Checking in on the week that was for the Braves, including a hiccup with the bats in Miami
  • The Ryan Flaherty era came to an end... at least with regard to his status as a member of the active, 25-man roster
  • Bryse Wilson was very impressive in his MLB debut and we break down the youngster
  • Kevin Gausman’s arrival has been fantastic and the Braves may have pulled off a memorable heist
  • Combing through the options for the final bench spot, including Rio Ruiz
  • Ozzie Albies, Nick Markakis and Freddie Freeman are all scuffling to varying degrees
  • Everybody’s favorite topic... lineup construction and the work of a particularly baseball manager
  • Sept. 1 is rapidly approaching and we discuss a few candidates (headlined by young pitchers) for roster expansion down the stretch
  • A brief look at the upcoming schedule gauntlet
  • Much, much more
