Baseball is back and so far the Padres aren’t terrible. After ten games they have an even record with some legitimate bright spots. This week the guys sat down with The Mighty 1090’s John Gennaro and David Jay from Madfriars.com to discuss the still-young season. There was plenty to talk about! First they discussed San Diego’s relationship with former Padres manager Bud Black, who was fired almost two years ago and has reemerged as the head coach of the Colorado Rockies, an in-division semi-rival. Wil Myers hit for the 2nd cycle in Padres history and the guys talked about how this exciting event spawned vitriol towards Matt Kemp, the polarizing former Padres outfielder, who while in San Diego, hit for the franchise’s first cycle. Then they talked about the overall trajectory of the rebuilding Padres by looking at players of note in the minors with David Jay, who studies all levels of the team’s development system. Will the Padres be able to rebuild in a timely fashion to satisfy the fans, media, potential free agents or TKF co-host Dallas McLaughlin? It’s too early to tell. Regardless, everybody on this podcast agreed that CF Manuel Margot is fun enough for now. Let’s go Padres!
