LISTEN: Trying Not to Overreact to the Padres Hot Start

The OnFriar Podcast looks at how excited we should be with San Diego's first 20 games

The Padres swept the Reds for the second time in two weeks and did it in convincing fashion. Manny Machado looks like an MVP. MacKenzie Gore looks like a Rookie of the Year. Eric Hosmer looks like a batting champ.

But, is this a product of beating up on bad teams or the play of a truly spectacular ballclub?

Those are among the many questions NBC 7's Derek Togerson and Darnay Tripp set out to answer in a new OnFriar Podcast. They talk about the sustainability of some hot individual starts, who gets kicked out of the rotation when an injured star is ready, and whether or not a young player with lots of upside has figured out Major League pitching.
