Podcast of the Week

by Nicholas McCann

The Padfathers – A Slam Diego Podcast: Padres STAR-ting Pitching

This was my first time checking out The Padfathers. The latest episode hosted by Los and Walls was a pretty standard check-in recording where they got the audience caught up with news and notes of what has been a pretty great stretch for Padres fans.

They had some good stats on what the problem areas are for the offense and what has been most exciting about he stellar pitching. But where the pod really gained steam for me was when their friend Nick (great name) jumped on while he was driving to LAX for a friend.

After rightfully complaining about gas prices and shitting on dodgers stadium, they had a great discussion about the Joe Musgrove/Jake Peavy connection. The three hosts are close in Joe’s age and understood the shared reverence for Peavy that Musgrove always makes a point to credit as an influence.

The Musgrove contract has and will continue to be a fascinating topic on Padres podcasts until it is resolved. Hearing people that are younger than me understand that connection with Peavy was pretty interesting. I loved Peavy in my mid 20s, but it doesn’t hold the same thing as it would have if I was Joe’s age. 

If he continues to have this great season and wins the Cy Young the marketing opportunities will be off the charts for the team because being able to draw a line between these two great bright spots in our history will be extremely useful.

Check these guys out. The Padfathers post every couple weeks and they hit all the important topics. I’ll be checking in with them later in the season.
