We first discuss the state of the Padres. Are they coming or going? They don’t even know. The tank talk is strong as the team is still within reach of a top-5 selection. With roughly 12 games left, the Friars would need a losing streak to gain a top selection. This will be worth monitoring as the season ends. September call-ups were just made, as Hunter Renfroe, Travis Jankowski, Christian…

August 21, 2017

For this solo show, we tried a little bit of a different format. Patrick and I started off the show with a little Padres “tank talk”.

It might be a little premature to speak about the team failing to land…
