Rick is the first to complain about the way Atlanta manager Brian Snitker handles the Braves bullpen. He thinks Snit is too quick to pull the starters and go to the bullpen which has been struggling more than helping. Rick credits Touki Toussaint for an impressive outing and thinks the bullpen hurt his outing Sunday. 

Rick then gave a shout-out to Dansby Swanson for having the web gem of the year Saturday night against the Diamondbacks for grabbing the ball in short center field and throwing it home to Kurt Suzuki for the out. Randy told Rick this probably wouldn’t have happened earlier in the year for Swanson.
