The Padres are 40-40. Right about where most folks were hoping they would be, which is .500. But they're also just a couple of games out of a National League Wild Card spot.
And that is a wonderfully agonizing spot to be in. Now they have to decide whether or not they go all-in for a post-season berth in 2019 or stay the course and work towards sustained success.
That's a big part of what we talk about in this week's On Friar Podcast. NBC's Derek Togerson is joined by Consumer Bob, who's been watching the Padres for nearly three decades and is an avid sports fan. He has some interesting takes on whether or not Hunter Renfroe should be traded and if the Padres are legitimate post-season threats this year.
Also we hear from rookie pitcher Logan Allen about what he learned starting the year in El Paso and how different the Major League ball is. Thanks for giving it a listen!
