Joe Patrick, our 92-9 The Game Atlanta Braves Insider, joined Robb Tribble and Emily Austen to talk about the Braves losing to the Cardinals 6-3. Both Robb and Emily mentioned their concerns about the Braves bullpen, but Joe made them feel a little better.

He talked about the bullpen playing better in spite of Sunday's blown lead. He also said due to teams playing money ball, this isn't just an Atlanta Braves problem. Joe said this is an MLB problem. He says the Dodgers are one of the league leaders in blown saves. 

Joe does think that the Braves will be buyers by the deadline.

"They (Braves) are like a poker player," said Patrick. "They have a hand, they know it's a good hand, but are trying to find the right time to push their chips in."

Patrick believes the Braves "will add an arm" by the deadline.
