Padres EVT Podcast: Episode 90 with Geoff Young

March 22, 2018

The San Diego Padres’ season is nearly upon us, so we thought we would bring in the “Blog Father” for a chat. Geoff Young has been writing about the San Diego Padres for a long time. He is very knowledgeable about the team, both past and present. It was awesome to pick his brain on some Padres-related topics. We found out his thoughts on Eric Hosmer. I also asked him…


Padres EVT Podcast: Episode 89 with James and Patrick

March 19, 2018

We are roughly 10 days from Opening Day and position battles are on the line for the start of the 2018 season. In this podcast we discuss each battle for the team. The second base job is up for grabs, as is the third base job. Then there is the crowded outfield situation. There is no clear answer there. It is getting down to crunch time, though, and something has…


Padres EVT Podcast: Episode 88 with James and Patrick

March 8, 2018

In this week’s show we talk about some spring training news. There are several competitions throughout camp for playing time and we break down each of them. The infield and outfield battles will likely last all the way through March, as Andy Green will need ample time to judge each candidate for a roster spot. Franchy Cordero and Hunter Renfroe are in a battle for the left field job and…

Padres EVT Podcast: Episode 86 (Hot Talent Lava) with James & Patrick

February 20, 2018

The San Diego Padres got their man as Eric Hosmer has signed an eight-year/$144 million deal with the team. I guaranteed he would not be signed. I was wrong. Not the first time in my life and certainly not the last. Let’s move on, people. I’ll be sure to tell him face to face that I was wrong. Don’t you worry about that. I was against signing him initially and…


Padres EVT Podcast: Episode 85 with Jeff Paternostro of Baseball Prospectus

The Baseball Prospectus’ Top-101 Prospects list was just released and six Padres made the cut. In an effort to keep you, the fans, connected, we brought back Jeff Paternostro of BP to discuss the list. Jeff first gives us some insight on how the list is constructed. The process is a true art form and it is very interesting to see how Jarret Seidler, Craig Goldstein, and Jeff devise the…

It took a little time to put this together, although we have been in contact with each since their respective lists dropped, but here is a breakdown of the Padres’ top 100 prospects from the two leading sources themselves. MLB pipeline and Baseball America do an excellent job of covering the minors. Their coverage is second to none. For this podcast we speak to both Jonathan Mayo and Kyle Glaser…


Padres EVT Podcast: Episode 83 with James and Patrick

January 31, 2018

The EVT Podcast is back. The beginning of the 2018 year has been rough for Padre fans. We first discuss some of the people around the team that have passed in the last month or so. Dick Enberg, Rob Picciolo, Kevin Towers, and Oscar Gamble will all be missed by the fans. It has been a very slow few weeks for the team. Not much recent news. Eris Hosmer is…

Padres EVT Podcast: Episode 80 with Jonathan Mayo & Eric Longenhagen

January 10, 2018

The San Diego Padres have traded Yangervis Solarte. The return? A very toolsy outfielder by the name of Edward Olivares. The former Blue Jay has plenty of upside, but we wanted to get an idea of what kind of player he is. Instead of just crunching numbers, we thought we would bring in two of the best evaluators in the business. Jonathan Mayo of and Eric Longenhagen of Fangraphs…
