Prospect Hugging With MadFriars, Getting Caught Up on Hassell, Gore and More

September Call-Ups ain't what they used to be, but it's a good excuse to talk Padres prospects. Derek and Darnay caught up with two guys who know them best: John Conniff and Mark Wilkens of MadFriars. They discuss Robert Hassell on the heels of a three-homer performance (6:04), and break down another intriguing outfield talent in James Wood (17:35). MacKenzie Gore is pitching again, any chance he joins the Padres this season? The guys assess the promising pitching prospect (24:26). They talk about CJ Abrams phenomenal start to 2021 and where he fits in the Padres' plans (38:38). And what about Luis Campusano? The guys share their outlook on his season and path to the bigs (48:28). This two-part episode also features Derek's chat with Padres CEO Erik Greupner about the 2021 season, ticket sales, and the response of fans in their return to Petco Park (1:05:42).
