Happy Sunday! The Atlanta Braves wrapped a jam-packed week and, on cue, the Talking Chop Podcast is here to break it all down with Episode 115. Joe Lucia of Awful Announcing joins the show and topics include the following:

  • Friday’s game was a masterpiece from Mike Foltynewicz and we evaluate where he is as a pitcher right now
  • Saturday’s game was... not as fun. We dive into the Brian Snitker experience, both in that particular spot and overall
  • Ronald Acuña’s injury wasn’t as bad as we feared last week and we check in on the youngster
  • The 2018 MLB All-Star Game is somehow closing in and we examine the candidacies of a few players, including the great Freddie Freeman
  • The Braves are now in the top 10 when it comes to 2018 World Series odds and that feels... right?
  • A reminder to take in every piece of the 2018 MLB Draft on Talking Chop, with a hat-tip to old friend Carlos Collazo of Baseball America, who is appearing on MLB Network this week
  • Much, much more
