Episode 62 - September 1, 2017

This week's episode was a bit unusual, as a power outage on one end caused us to record during the Braves' game against the Cubs. But really, the individual ups and downs during a game are not as important for this team as they might be. Reflecting on the Brandon Phillips trade and the recent September call ups, we return to the theme of the season, the ongoing rebuild by the front office. One of the pieces who will still not affect that rebuild at the Major Leagues this year is Ronald Acuna, who will instead go to the Arizona Fall League. Absolutely contributing this year are Dansby Swanson and Ozzie Albies, who are looking more and more like the double play combo of the present. Our biggest concern continues to be the pitching staff, which has been distressingly inconsistent.
