On Friar, An NBC 7 Padres Podcast
Summary: With NBC 7 San Diego's Darnay Tripp and Derek Togerson behind the mic, On Friar will cover all things San Diego Padres. Interviews, analysis, behind the scenes...the ups, downs, and everything in between.
We're past the halfway point and the Padres continue to struggle at the dish. The guys draw some conclusions based on the team's latest slump.
Who's going to end the weekend in 1st place in the NL West? And why does Bob Brenly say the things he says? The OnFriar Podcast discusses both topics.
On a much needed day off for the Padres, Derek and Darnay discuss the good and bad from the last week. Plus a few thoughts on the team's steady play compared to last year, Bob Melvin's impact and Manny Machado's reputation.
Manny Machado suffered a gruesome looking ankle injury in Colorado. One day later, the OnFriar Podcast gets a remarkably positive update on his health and gets a read from inside the clubhouse on how the Padres will get by without the MVP.
One of the greatest Padres of all time, Jake Peavy was back in San Diego for the first time in six years. We catch up with the Cy Young winner to see what he's up to and get his take on the current Friars.
Manny is looking like an MVP. Musgrove is looking like a Cy Young winner. And the Padres are looking out of this world good. The guys recap an eventful week that included an update on Fernando Tatis Jr.
After an explosive couple nights against the Mets the guys discuss their offensive resurgence, the wait for Tatis, and how his presence will impact the lineup.

The guys imagine a world where Juan Soto is teammates with Fernando Tatis Jr. and Manny Machado, and discuss the highs and lows from a low-scoring series win in Philly.
New NBC Sports acquisition Jon Morosi joins the guys to discuss key factors in the Padres' impressive start, and what makes Manny Machado elite and underappreciated at the same time.
With the Padres taking another road series the guys discuss Joe Musgrove's season and future, roster questions, a possible addition, Manny getting snubbed and more.
The Padres swept the Reds again, begging the question: is this team really good or just beating up on other awful clubs? The OnFriar Podcast looks at all the possibilities at the season's 20-game mark.
The Padres have played great defense and pitched extremely well. Now, how do they get the bats working? The OnFriar Podcast takes a statistical look at what's causing the offensive power outage and whether or not it can be fixed.
