Pads Pod Episode 10: Happy Anniversary

On our 10th anniversary episode we talking pitching:

Should the coaching staff be getting more credit for the turnarounds of OD and Kennedy?  Also, we discuss James Shields’ leadership role and if he’s maybe going a bit too far.

Lastly, we analyze our upcoming schedule and make some predictions for the season.

This episode was recorded immediately after the Mets series and is brought to you buy Shotgun Tom Kelly.


Pads Pod Episode 9: The Real BR

On the ninth episode of Pads Pod, recorded during the series against the Angels, we search for optimism with this underwhelming Padres team.  We then compare Southern Californian ball park experiences.  Finally, we take our first call from a man who hates baseball and is dead set on its destruction.

Pads Pod Episode 8: Sorry Fam

On the eighth episode of Pads Pod, we wonder in vain about the source of the team’s inconsistencies.  Also, in a bit of a change of pace, we take a more holistic look at baseball and discuss whether baseball code and culture will prevent its future growth.

In order to fully enjoy our baseball culture discussion, you should take a look at the following two pieces of media:

1. Vice Sports: “MLB’s Culture Clash, or Why Baseball is Boring”

2. HBO Real Sports: Chris Rock’s Take on Blacks in Baseball


Pads Pod Episode 7: Return to the Hamper

On this episode of Pads Pod, we return to the laundry hamper and describe some interesting events we witnessed in the Padres’ clubhouse.

*This episode was recorded about a week ago during the series with the Diamondbacks.  Because of some technical difficulties, we weren’t able to edit and upload it until today.  However, because most of what we talk about has proven to still be relevant (i.e. Despaigne totally sucking), we’ve decided to release it rather than scrap it.  A new, and more current episode will be recorded tomorrow.

Pads Pod Episode 6: The Resurrection

On the sixth episode of Pads Pod, we discuss how seriously we should take the Padres brief stopover in Loserville. We then return to the bright side and play a matching game featuring some impressive and surprising statistics.  Finally, we deviate from the norm and talk Chargers with Little Moe, who has come back from the dead.

*This episode was recorded before the sweep of the Rockies was complete, so disregard any negative thing we said because obviously we won’t lose another game for the rest of the season.

Pads Pod Episode 5: Step it Up

In this, the 5th episode of Pads Pod, we consider who we’d want to up to bat with the World Series on the line.  In addition, we discuss the possibility of a new shortstop.  You’ll also hear our pitch for a Kickstarter campaign to bring back Mervyn’s department store. 

Pads Pod Episode 4: Guess Who

On this episode of Pads Pod we discuss the San Diego Padres series win against the Diamondbacks and gush about our wonderful lineup.  Also, we ponder the theory that AJ is behind the Chargers leaving San Diego.  Finally, we play a Padres ‘Guess Who’ game. You’ll also hear an entertaining commercial from our sponsor who created the logo you see below.
