The Padres needed to add a bat who could play multiple positions and that’s what they’ve done! Matt Carpenter may have been seeing his career come to end in 2021 but he revamped his swing and came back in 2022 as one of the hottest hitters on the planet for the Yankees. Can he have the same impact in San Diego as he did in New York? I give my reaction to the move in this episode of Talking Friars!
