Greetings! The Talking Chop Podcast is back after a one-week hiatus and the All-Star break provides a soft landing spot for Episode 121. TC’s Eric Cole joins the program and topics include the following:

  • Two weeks of results and, while they weren’t great, the Braves are in fine shape
  • The Ender Inciarte whispers have turned to screams and they center on him not being a great fit in the lead-off spot on a daily basis
  • The All-Star festivities are in motion, even if Freddie Freeman came up short in the Home Run Derby
  • Mike Moustakas may not be better than Johan Camargo but, in short, it would be a good thing to acquire him anyway
  • The bench is... not great
  • Do Braves fans need to worry about the financial ability to acquire players via trade in the next couple of weeks?
  • Mike Soroka and Arodys Vizcaino are on the shelf with injuries and we discuss both
  • What happened with Carter Stewart and Eric’s thoughts on the fallout after the youngster didn’t sign
  • The Talking Chop prospect list is rolling out this week!
  • Much, much more
