padrestwitterIt’s that time of year again. Two years ago, I published what I considered to be the most comprehensive list of Padres-related Twitter accounts that I thought every Padres fan should be following. I updated it as needed as players were traded or people changed jobs, but that just got time-consuming and monotonous.

I redid the entire thing exactly one year later, with new accounts added and others removed, mostly due to repetitiveness or just no longer existing.

I revisited it this month, and what follows are the results.

Some are informative follows. Some are humorous. Some are both. But all of them, I guarantee*, will improve your Padres Twitter experience.

*Guarantee void in Tennessee. And everywhere else, for that matter. I guarantee nothing except eventual death.

We tracked down the very busy Ben Higgins of XTRA Sports 1360 “The World of Sports” and Channel 10 Sports for the latest Padres and Pints at the amazing Iron Fist Brewing Company in Vista, California. Due to the pure awesomeness of the content, it forced my old computer to crash, resulting in having to buy a new computer and delaying the release of the video. But it’s here finally!

Ben tells some fascinating stories about his grandparents and their strong ties to Padres Spring Training history and a famous surgery. Of course we talk about his many jobs, the Padres trade deadline deal of Ian Kennedy and his viral video super stardom as well.

We also chat with the Head Brewer at Iron Fist, Brandon Sieminski. He fills us in on their upcoming 3rd Anniversary event, some specialty beers they have in the works and the in’s and out’s of Iron Fist.

So sit back (preferably with an Iron Fist brew) and enjoy!

After some computer issues delayed things last week on my end and Mike “no work computer good”, Melvin stepped up and edited the podcast like a boss.

In this episode we discuss the many nicknames of Chris Denorfia, our expectations of the Padres going forward, steroid talk and discuss our Ben Higgins interview (that will be posted this week, as I plan on getting a new computer today).

If you have any questions or comments, go ahead and leave them down below or e-mail us.

I just read a short blog from Ben Higgins this morning about the Garfinkel resignation and he ended it with this:

Everything Tom Garfinkel touched didn’t turn to gold, but I liked his ideas and what he stood for. I still have no idea what the Fowler/Seidler/O’Malley group is all about.

Great question, Ben. Who are these guys?

I’m going to try to help Ben, because I think I may know the answer.

Still unknown is whether Byrnes drank the iced coffee.

Josh Byrnes was a guest this morning on XTRA Sports 1360‘s The World of Sports According to Chris and Ben.


Earlier today, Gaslamp Ball posted their own recap, but I was already in the middle of writing this. So I don’t want to hear any crap about “you’re just stealing from them again!”

You can listen and/or download the entire interview here.

I had the amazing opportunity to host the latest Padres and Pints at the Knockaround Padres Pep Rally at Mission Brewery a few weeks back. In it we chat with Ace from Knockaround, Padres radio voice Andy Masur, Megan Olivi saves the day and rescues Beau’s intro like a true pro, we talk beer with Adam from Mission Brewery, plus we stump the likes of Ducksnorts and Ben Higgins in a round of Padres trivia!

A BIG thank you goes out to Ace, Andy, Megan, Ben, Adam from Mission, Jordan, Tony, Garvin and every single person that took the time to chat with me that night. It was a complete blast!
