Happy Sunday, everyone.

The Atlanta Braves endured an up-and-down week at the office, suffering four consecutive losses before generating back-to-back wins over the weekend. To chronicle it all, the Talking Chop Podcast is back for Episode 236, and TC’s own Eric Cole is back to join us.

Topics include the following:

  • Ronald Acuña is still out of the lineup and, with Ozzie Albies also on the shelf, that is less than ideal for Atlanta
  • Cristian Pache... soon?
  • The anatomy of a four-game losing streak, beginning with a Sean Newcomb hiccup that got him optioned to the alternate site
  • The starting pitching remains an adventure aside from Max Fried
  • Atlanta’s weekend response was positive, erasing some of the bad taste as the club returns to Truist Park
  • The MLB Playoffs could happen in a bubble this year
  • Much, much more
