In case you missed it, Sac Bunt Chris and myself had the awesome honor of being on Padres Social Hour last Friday, mere hours after the trade deadline. We both had a blast and a huge thank you goes out to Jesse, Blooper (Seth), Nicky and the poor intern who had to fetch us unwrapped Watermelon Jolly Ranchers, cut into 3rds and soaked in a bowl of strawberry lemonade, during every commercial break. We are so demanding.

Join us for Part 1 of the highly anticipated Jesse Agler interview! We sit down with the host of Padres POV and occasional TV/Radio broadcaster at Mike Hess Brewing in North Park to chat about what really makes him tick. When he, and his dad, think his love of baseball started, how he got his start in broadcasting, what he remembers from his initial Miami Dolphins interview with Mike Dee, who he reaches out to in San Diego when he needs some broadcasting advice and MORE!

We also chat with Greg Hess and, a familiar name in Padre-land, Cesar Torres, about the ins and outs of Mike Hess Brewing! How they got their start, Hessfest (THIS SATURDAY! GET YOUR TICKETS NOW!), the Open Mike cans, their big plans in OB and North Park and more!

*Due to the file size I had to split up the Jesse Agler interview into 2 parts. Part 2 will be up as soon as my Vimeo account limit refreshes (Monday….I think)

We’ve now done 20 episodes of the video series and 30 episodes of the podcast. That’s a lot of beer and baseball chat! Thanks for watching & listening!

Catch an all new episode of Padres and Pints Social Hour! This week Rick and Chris are joined by the legendary duo, Jesse Agler and Bill Center at Mike Hess Brewing. Apparently it wasn’t wise to have a trash company sponsor your guests.

On a serious note, watch the entire interview with Jesse and the Mike Hess Brewing crew this Friday at Padres Public!

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres (30-29) scored more runs than the Atlanta Braves (27-30), 5-3 in 11 innings yesterday. Neither Ian Kennedy (3-5, 6.48) nor Shelby Miller (5-2, 1.84) figured in the decision.

Kennedy allowed three runs on eight hits and no walk with six strikeouts in five innings. Cameron Maybin, Freddie Freeman, and Nick Markakis each had one RBI for the Braves.

Miller pitched seven innings giving up just one run on five hits and a walk with six strikeouts. Cory Spangenberg had two RBI and Justin Upton, Matt Kemp, and Alexi Amarista each added one RBI apiece for the Padres.

Craig Kimbrel pitched the eleventh inning for his 14th save on the season and 200th of his career.

Tonight at 4:10pm PDT will see James Shields (7-0, 3.58) going against Mike Foltynewicz (3-2, 4.29) at Turner Field. Join us at Mike Hess Brewing in North Park to watch the game and stay for a live Padres And Pints taping with Jesse Agler of Padres Social Hour and broadcasting legend Bob Chandler.

I had the amazing opportunity to appear on the awesome new pre-game show, Padres Social Hour, last night along side the Godfather of RJ’s Fro, Randy Jones. I was there for the Taste of Petco Park food tour, which I’ll discuss in more detail tomorrow, and I was watching the show. Next thing I know Jesse Agler approached me and told me to come on down. I initially thought it was for a tour of the set but then quickly realized I was going to be on. Less than a minute later and we were rolling. A big thanks to Jesse, RJ & the Padres for having me on, it was a blast!
