Happy Sunday! The Talking Chop Podcast is back for Episode 124 and the Atlanta Braves are playing good baseball. That provides a fun backdrop and TC’s Eric Cole joins us this week to discuss the following:

  • The Braves are scalding hot and that is encouraging... even if the Phillies might be even hotter
  • Atlanta’s playoff odds have improved, even with Philadelphia playing quite well
  • Anibal Sanchez, Julio Teheran and a discussion surrounding the starting rotation at this particular juncture
  • Eric’s thoughts on the trades from last week, including Kevin Gausman’s debut and the addition of Adam Duvall
  • Minor league promotions and how they might impact Atlanta’s future
  • MLB Pipeline’s latest rankings do not have the Braves at No. 1 overall
  • Eric’s piece on Dansby Swanson and how Braves fans should be approaching the former No. 1 overall pick in the future
  • Touki Toussaint and Kyle Wright as bullpen options
  • Big-picture thoughts on the spots on the diamond that Atlanta could upgrade and how difficult it is to evaluate some of the team’s pieces
  • Much, much more
