Talking Friars Ep. 167: MLB Network’s Lauren Shehadi Talks Padres, MLB Central Success & Women in Baseball

Plus, can Manny Machado win the NL MVP?

MLB: NLCS-Atlanta Braves at Los Angeles Dodgers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The latest episode of Talking Friars was a fun one to do. I sat down with Lauren Shehadi of MLB Network and TBS to discuss if the San Diego Padres have a better chance to win the World Series this season compared to last, if Manny Machado is able to win the NL MVP despite the media’s misconceptions of him, how much Lauren is enjoying her new role as the pregame and postgame host for TBS’ Tuesday broadcasts, how proud she is about how much MLB Central has grown over the years, Nabil Crismatt needing to get some national recognition and the importance of women being at the forefront of sports broadcasting.
