Wow, an actual Braves news item broke BEFORE we recorded the podcast, that almost never happens. DOB and EOF are extra thankful for this timely nugget because they're able to start your weekend off on a high note by reacting to Atlanta acquiring Joc Pederson from the Cubs in exchange for 1B prospect Bryce Ball. Is Pederson's addition enough to bridge the space left by Ronald Acuna Jr. who remains out with a season-ending injury? Does this transaction signal an all-in attitude from the front office? Who could the Braves trade for next? David and Eric determine the club's most glaring needs as the trade deadline approaches. Why does the Braves-Cubs exchange instill more confidence in Eric about Freddie Freeman's ongoing contract situation? Lastly, will seven-inning double-headers be no more after this year?
