Happy Sunday! Episode 119 of the Talking Chop Podcast is here to chronicle everything that transpired for the Atlanta Braves this week and Zach Dillard of FOX Sports South joins us on this edition of the show.

Topics include the following:

  • A bizarre 2-3 week with wins sandwiched around a three-game losing skid
  • Ronald Acuña might be back soon but it doesn’t appear to be Monday
  • Breaking down Dansby Swanson, including what he has been to this point, what he might be in the future and what he isn’t
  • Julio Teheran had another rough outing on Saturday and we evaluate the veteran right-hander
  • Mike Soroka is on the DL and that isn’t the best sign in the world
  • Arodys Vizcaino had a weird week that (finally) resulted in a DL stint
  • It’s Evan Phillips time
  • Some appreciation for Freddie Freeman
  • The Ender Inciarte lead-off spot debate is back
  • Zach’s thoughts on Brian Snitker from inside the clubhouse, future trade options and the upcoming schedule
  • Much, much more
