In this 30th episode of the show, we welcome back Kyle Glaser.
He took a job with Baseball America just about one year ago and is now touring the country visiting numerous minor league facilities. He has a wealth of knowledge about the farm system of virtually every team, and the Padres are no different.
Being that Kyle is a San Diego native, he has kept tabs on the Friars and is well aware of what A.J. Preller is attempting to accomplish.
Both Patrick and I speak to Kyle about the Padres presently playing in San Diego, but the majority of our time was spent discussing the minor leagues.
Kyle wrote the forward for the Padres in the Baseball America Minor League Handbook, as he helped rank the team’s top 30 prospects for the publication. It is a great read and vital for any baseball junkie. I highly recommend it. The vast knowledge at a fan’s fingertips amazes me in this day and age we live in.
The San Diego Padres are the home town team for all three of us. We are all native San Diegans, and we have a special place in our hearts for the Padres, no matter how good or bad they are. It will be a pleasure to see this team become relevant very soon.
