On Friar

LISTEN: On Friar Podcast – Opening Day is Almost Here, What'd Jesse Agler Learn This Spring?

We've nearly made it to April 7. So how should we feel about a team with a bunch of key new pieces and one glaring absence?

Jesse Agler is the radio voice of the San Diego Padres on 97.3 The Fan, and he was kind enough to share his takeaways from Spring Training.

What impact will the short runway have on the club early in the season, especially the rotation? Jesse shares his thoughts on how Bob Melvin manages his team and manages the media, and why Ruben Niebla is so highly thought of. Who does he get most excited to see on the lineup card? The guys discuss Luke Voit and try to put a positive spin on Fernando Tatis Jr.'s absence.

They get all of that out of the way before tackling the hard-hitting questions that have had Padres Twitter buzzing the last couple weeks.
