With the annual non-waiver trade deadline landing on a Tuesday afternoon, the Talking Chop podcast is (slightly) delayed this week but, as you likely know by this point, there is plenty to discuss on this particular show. Episode 123 features a visit from TC’s own Scott Coleman to discuss the following Atlanta Braves-centric topics:

  • Chipper Jones went into the Hall of Fame over the weekend, even if he probably didn’t receive the level of coverage that was warranted
  • Sean Newcomb had a great and terrible day at the same time
  • Atlanta’s TV broadcast was in the news for some sub-optimal reasons
  • The Braves have a new rotation piece and we break down the Kevin Gausman swap that also includes an expensive, injured and effective reliever
  • Adam Duvall is the newest member of the Braves outfield and we explore his game
  • The additions of Brad Brach and old friend Jonny Venters came at (very) little cost but how much do the veteran relievers actually help Atlanta on the field?
  • Diving into the post-deadline roster with an eye toward the future, including some youngsters poised for potential impact
  • Much, much more
