The SDSU West and Ohtani Episode – TKF Pod #112

This week the guys dig into SDSU’s potential expansion to Mission Valley with VOSD’s Andy Keatts. They talk about the 2018 race coming up between the university’s idea and SoccerCitySD’s plan that has already made it on the ballot.

Then they call Dustin Palmateer (@SacBuntDustin) and dive into Ohtani Mania! Will this international phenomenon roll through San Diego and completely change the struggling franchise’s rebuild? All we can do is wait and see. Check out Dustin’s new site sacbuntnewsletter.com and subscribe!

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT(S)! – TKF Pod

It’s time to take The Kept Faith to the next level, and we need your support…

Since 2007 Nick and I have been writing about San Diego sports. Back then the void for an opinion that wasn’t radio or the U-T was unfathomably large. Our writing was pretty bad, and all over the place, and we were on blogspot. In 2010, Producer Travis joined the fold as we began the TKF Podcast. Many incarnations, contributors, and think-pieces on Jake Peavy later we’re ready to make a few announcements! (Listen to the announcement pod here.)

WE’RE STARTING A PATREON!

We’re launching it on Black Friday  – THIS FRIDAY! And, if you become a Patron of our Patreon this Friday – ON BLACK FRIDAY  – for $5 a month, you will receive a free limited edition Kept Faith t-shirt! That’s right, become a Patron and get a free t-shirt! We will be fully explaining what it means to be a Patron of TKF, and the benefits included later this week, but this is huge (or UGE because our President, remember? He says “huge” funny. HAHAHA what a good joke we’re all gonna die.)

If you become a Patron of TKF your contributions will allow us the flexibility and bandwidth to support new podcasts, merch, multiple weekly posts from all over the spectrum – sabermetrics (not Dallas) to ridiculous pieces about the way Jankowski wears his hair. We’ll also be able to produce more live shows and events, speaking of…

THE KEPT FAITH WINTER MEETINGS AND SAN DIEGO SPORTS TRIVIA CHAMPIONSHIP!

January 10th at The Whistle Stop in South Park, we’ll be holding our second live podcast recording. The guests will be announced in December, and details including trading bazaar and more will also be announced soon. But, this detail is being announced now –

Paul Reindl – TKF Pod #104

This week the guys chat with Paul Reindl from the Mighty 1090. Paul is the producer of the Dan Sileo Show and hosts his own podcast The Reindl Report. They dig into the experience of watching the first game of the LA Chargers by discussing the outcome and the reaction from fans in Los Angeles and San Diego. Will this be a disaster for the NFL moving forward? It’s too early to tell, but it’s not off to a good start and it’s amazing to watch.

Then they talk about the winding down 2017 Padres season. What will happen in the offseason? Does the franchise have a clear vision on what they’re going to do throughout this building (not rebuilding) process? Paul produces the weekly segment called Padres Wednesday for the Sileo Show where Ron Fowler and other team officials come on and explain the team’s position. He gives the guys insight into what it’s like to experience that first hand on a regular basis.

James Clark (EVT) – TKF Pod #102

This week the guys have a fun chat with James Clark from East Village Times. Before talking Padres, Dallas goes on a rant on the problems he has with the Chargers still being a part of the San Diego Sports conversation, while Nick tries to calm him down. Then they talk about the Padres 2017 Tanking/Building/Rebuilding/Developmental season and the different factors that have gone into the results so far. They look at the Hunter Renfroe demotion, the Andy Green extension and the overall future of the farm system that needs to shine through in order to have success come San Diego’s way.

Live at The Whistlestop – TKF Pod #94

The Kept Faith recorded their first live podcast in front of real human beings. At the Whistlestop Bar in South Park, they had a fun panel including Steven Woods (Rock 105.3), Craig Elsten (Mighty 1090), and City Councilman Chris Cate. They talked about the Padres rebuild, the Gulls successful season, and the mess that looks like the end for SoccerCity. Then they went deeper into the overall pessimism that has washed over San Diego within the context of sports and tried to understand where it came from and how we can move away from it. It was a fun time had by all! TKF contributor Padres Haiku played hot jams and there were tons of laughs.

Special thanks to the Whistlestop for hosting the event and supporting other great projects in our community!

Darren Smith – TKF Pod #93

Darren Smith from the Mighty 1090 came down to hang out with the guys and talk about what it’s like covering sports in San Diego now that the Chargers are gone and there’s an all out war taking place to fill the void left behind. With the help of VOSD’s Andy Keatts, they talk about the City Council meeting that took place on Monday and what might be coming down the pike for Mayor Faulconer. Will his legacy be determined by what unfolds in the in the next few weeks? It’s hard to say how it will all play out, but we can all agree that it has very little to do with sports and more to do with the gridlock in our city government. Then they talk about the 2017 Padres and how the front office isn’t hiding the fact that they don’t expect this team to win and are just hoping to build for the future. Will ownership have the patience to stomach several more years of this? Time will tell, but at least it won’t involve a fight with a SDSU (that is, until Aztec Football moves into Petco and overstays their welcome).

Come on down to The Whistle Stop Bar June 13th at 7:30pm for our first live podcast recording! We’ll have special guests Steven Woods, Craig Elsten, and City Councilmember Chris Cate! Also DJ Padres Haiku!

SoccerCity, Cubs, and Bryce! – TKF Pod #92

San Diego’s most popular sport is fighting about stadiums. This week the guys unpack as many aspects of the SoccerCity vs SDSU mess as they can with friend of the pod Dike Anyiwo from SoccerNation.com and the Soccer Nation Podcast. They dig into the recent declarations by city council members David Alvarez and Chris Ward that they will not support a special election this November. What kind of blow does this mean for the future of MLS in San Diego? It could be devastating if the city delays the vote to 2018 and operates outside the crucial timetable the MLS has designated for expansion. Then they talk about SDSU’s confusing position in all of this. Was the university naive to think this would all work itself out and things would be fine when the Chargers left? It’s hard to believe this is shaping up to be another summer arguing about what the city should do with Mission Valley and the potential sports options that come with it. The guys also celebrate the Padres sweep of the World Champion Chicago Cubs, make fun of the rest of the country’s obsession with San Diego’s connection with the Will Ferrell film Anchorman, and share their thoughts on the Bryce Harper fight.

The Kept Faith is having its first Live Podcast at The Whistle Stop June 13th at 7:30pm! Be there!

Andy Keatts and Coach Lew – TKF Pod #91

This week the guys discuss the Petco Park in-game experience with Andy Keatts and Scott Lewis from VoiceofSanDiego.org. Last week the two co-hosts of the VOSD Podcast went to a game together and made certain choices that left one of them cold. Then they discuss the Padres’ $99 “5 Wins in June” deal that has some fans upset. Other organizations have a similar promotion, so are the Padres not handling it well, or are San Diego fans just using it as an excuse to spew vitriol on the Internet? Regardless, the Padres are the worst team in baseball and it’s shaping up to be a complicated summer. Goofy giveaways and some exciting young talent can only go so far to placate a fanbase that is growing tired of “rebuilding.” Later, the guys take a look at Mayor Kevin Faulconer’s legacy when it comes to sports, and the city as a whole. Could he have handled things differently to smooth over the now burgeoning SoccerCitySD vs SDSU blood war? Scott and Andy share their thoughts having covered his entire administration from beginning to end.
