For the 31st episode of the Padres EVT Podcast, we bring you something different.

For the first time in the history of the show, we have no guest.

Instead, we will just talk Padres baseball and the state of the game ourselves.

The San Diego Padres are a young team, and with that, there are many growing pains that have to be endured by the fan base.

Manuel Margot, Hunter Renfroe, and Austin Hedges provide a solid nucleus for the team, but there are still some unanswered questions surrounding this team.

We delve into the Cory Spangenberg and Ryan Schimpf situation. Both players deserve playing time, but there just isn’t enough roster space for both to get consistent at bats.

Luis Urias is discussed as we speak of his growth and the fact the young man is very impressive. The Mexican infielder is tearing it up in San Antonio and his growth is certainly something to keep an eye on.

We cover some international news, as we discuss Luis Robert and Shohei Otani. The chances of the Padres landing either player is talked about between us. Each player will not be cheap, but have an intriguing ability to their game. Both are outstanding talents. The Padres will surely kick the tires on each player.

A stat segment is introduced to the show where we discuss some outrageous stats that Ryan Schimpf is putting up. Each week we will look into some baseball analytics numbers and interpret them for you. The Statcast experience is real and quickly becoming an important part of the game.

All in all, the show was an interesting one. We discussed Padres’ content (except for a Rockies/N.L. West debate) only and will try to do a weekly show with this format on top of our guest related shows. Please let us know if you have any questions or comments. Thank you for the support.

  1. Enjoyed this one, guys. Intelligent, thoughtful discussion about Padres baseball is always welcome.

    Future guest suggestions: Tony Gwynn Jr., Bill Center, David Jay, and Jason Martinez of MLB Trade Rumors (he lives in San Diego and is a Padres fan). I would also love to see more interviews with people who work in the Minor League System (anyone from Lake Elsinore in particular, with all the talent we have there).
