On the latest edition of the Talking Friars, Jacob Zimmermann and I discussed the San Diego Padres series loss to the Philadelphia Phillies which included Blake Snell putting together another solid outing, Manny Machado starting his own home run parade, and the late offensive outbreak in the series finale. We then talked about the unfortunate news surrounding top prospect C.J. Abrams. Finally, we discussed which Padres were selected to the All-Star Game and who was snubbed (I was very emotional about one certain Padre).
