So we are starting a new weekly feature here at Gwynntelligence. This Week In Padres Twitter will attempt to curate the best blog posts, articles, podcasts and tweets about the Padres each week. This should provide a handy digest of all things interesting and Padres related that can easily get lost on a Twitter feed.
Gwynntelligence blog posts:
We looked at how a fallen top prospect like Zach Lee may have the most value either in trade or to the next competitive Padres team, and shouldn’t be stuck in AAA to get hack veterans meaningless innings.
In the feature no one is clamoring for, Marver brought back his Padres/Pokemon mash up feature. On the bright side, the more Marver focuses on Pokemon mash ups, the less he can tweet about insurance market risk pools!
In the latest podcast episode, we discuss season predictions after getting off track reminiscing about Walter Silva’s brief but notable tenure on the Padres.
Padres Blogosphere posts:
Marcus wrote a great review of the non-Hedges catching prospects in spring camp.
Jbox does a great job of capturing just how wrong Bill Center is to anoint Fowler and Seidler as top 20 Padres of all time at this point of The Plan. Let’s face it, this list is just the worst. THE WORST.
This is self explanatory.
Golden Age of Padres Podcasts:
It was a good week for podcasts with Padres and Pints showing their faces for their twice yearly podcast. Still waiting for Pads Pod to emerge from hibernation.
Gwynntelligence: put out a new episode this week capturing season predictions
Padres and Pints: interviewed Tabitha Lipkin
The Kept Faith: had noted Richard Christy impersonator and local scribe Bernie Wilson on to talk a range of San Diego sports but not to tell his Shawn Abner stories.
