I was once again a guest on The Kept Faith podcast this week along with Chris Garcia. We discussed FS Investors vs SDSU, the signing of Jered Weaver, and finished off with some baseball movie talk.

Last year they had me on to talk about The Fan, which is arguably one of the worst movies involving baseball ever made. This time, to make it up to me, we talked about Eight Men Out, which is one of my favorite baseball movies.

You can find out where you can listen to it in The Kept Faith’s post. Do it.

AJ discusses the Padres roster situation on opening day, how he became the Padres beat writer, his history in San Diego, and his thoughts on modern baseball analytics.

Opening Day. A time for excitement over the upcoming season. A day of smells like hot dogs and leather and freshly cut grass. Every fan loves the experience of Opening Day.

I spent this Opening Day in a small room with three other guys watching the game on TV and making smart-ass comments about stuff.

The Kept Faith invited me and Padres Haiku to partake in an experiment of sorts. A podcast recorded at the same time as the Padres Opening Day game.

I have no idea how good or bad this is, as I haven’t listened to it yet. But we talked about things that happened in the game, opened some baseball cards, and drank a little. Enjoy?

Chris joins guest Randy Gyorko for episode 32, brother of former Padre and current St. Louis Cardinals infielder Jedd Gyorko.

Randy shares his thoughts as a close family member of a major leaguer, as Jedd is drafted by the Padres and rises through the farm system. Randy also shares his feelings about learning Jedd was traded to the Cardinals, plus has a great story about hassling Chase Headley at a game in Pittsburgh, and his story of becoming a Padres fan from West Virginia.

Later, Rick of Padres and Pints: the Podcast! makes an appearance.

Back in December, at the Padres Social Summit, I met the guys from The Kept Faith. After helping to break up their fight with the Padres And Pints crew (by pointing out that no one from Gwynntelligence was even invited) we sat around talking about all sorts of stuff. A few days later, they asked me if I would come on the podcast as a guest.

Unfortunately, I came down with a really bad cold just a few days before I was supposed to record with them, so I had to take a rain check.

This week, that rain check came due.

We talk about our predictions for the Padres this year, the All-Star Game, how the O’Fowdler Group is doing as Padres owners, and the horrible movie from 1996, The Fan.

You can download and listen to the podcast here.
