Podcast of the Week

Friar Talk: A Padres Podcast – Evaluating the Deadline Additions

On this episode the Friar Talk guys did a quick look at the players added at the deadline. This has been a huge topic of conversation, leaving fans wondering if Preller made the right moves.

This is a pretty measured look at the moves. The guys basically take the stance that it is too early to make a decision on the moves because all of the players in question could still have monster post seasons should the Padres make it that far.

Drury, Soto, Bell, and Hader will have to be successful in 2022 for AJ Preller to stay in good graces with the fanbase. If this season doesn’t amount to much he will be left with a depleted farm system and very little success with the major league club. After 8 years, what are we supposed to think?

The Friar Talk guys believe Preller will have no problem rebuilding the farm whether these trades work out or not. The question all Padres fans need to ask is, should he be allowed to do that again?

Check out Friar Talk. They release a lot of short and precise eps that get right to the center of what the fanbase is thinking about.
