PODCAST: Franmil Reyes/Logan Allen trade reaction!

The guys are back to recap/review the San Diego Padres trade deadline moves and they’ve brought a friend with them.

MLB: San Diego Padres at Colorado Rockies
Farewell, sweet prince.

Welp, the latest episode of Make the Padres Great Again is here, and we have plenty to talk about.

This is an extra beefy episode that goes for an hour and twenty-ish minutes, and we mostly talk about two things:

  1. Franmil Reyes, Logan Allen, and Victor Nova being traded to the Reds/Indians in exchange for OF Taylor Trammell
  2. Brad Wieck being traded to the Cubs in exchange for Carl Edwards Jr.

That’s it! However, there’s a lot in those subjects. Such as...

  • Was this good value for the Padres?
  • Does this change the Padres’ timeline for being competitive (2020)?
  • How does Trammell possibly fit into the OF? Is he a CF or LF?
  • What does this trade mean for Wil Myers?
  • What does the 2020 Padres starting rotation look like without Logan Allen?
  • Did my neighbor die from too much sneezing?
  • Could Carl Edwards Jr. change how we think about Kirby Yates?
  • Should the team be talking contract extension with Kirby Yates?
  • Why didn’t the Padres trade for a starting pitcher like everyone expect them to?
  • Is Franmil Reyes the next David Ortiz and should Padres fans be upset if he is?

Anyway, it’s a fun episode. Craig and I were even joined by our friend Cesar Torres (who has a microphone) and my wife (who does not), which means this is more a party than a podcast.
