Atlanta United will have to play their next seven games without one of their best players so far this season, Ezequiel Barco. He left the team Monday to join Argentina's U-20 national team for the World Cup.

The Atlanta Braves had a scare with ace pitcher Max Fried who slid head first into home plate yesterday using his pitching hand to touch the bag. (Also, why are we letting our best pitcher pinch-hit?)

With those two instances as examples, Andy Bunker and Randy McMichael discuss which players each Atlanta professional sports teams couldn't afford to go an extended period of time without.

Here's how they broke it down:

Atlanta United: Ezequiel Barco

Atlanta Braves: Freddie Freeman

Atlanta Hawks: Trae Young

Atlanta Falcons: Matt Ryan
